In the title compound, [Pt2(μ-C14H 16N3)4](ClO4)6·- 2H2O, the diplatinum(II) cation is found to be a head-to-tail isomer. The intradimer Pt-Pt distance [3.0304 (7) Å] is much shorter than the value of 3.0852 (13) Å reported for the analogous cis-diammineplatinum(II) dimer bridged by 2-(N′-methyl-4,4′-bipyridinium-1-yl)acetamidates [Sakai, Ikuta, Tsubomura, Kato, Yokoyama, Kajiwara & Ito (2003). Acta Cry st. E59, m780-m783], showing that the electron density at the metal centers is higher in the title system than in the previously reported system. The shortest interdimer Pt⋯Pt distance is 8.4585 (8) Å.
