The intradimer Pt-Pt distance [3.0928 (9) Å] in the title compound, [Pt2(μ-C5H9O2) 2(NH3)4]ClO4)2· C5H10O2, is much longer than that reported for [Pt2(μ-C5H9O2) 2(NH3)4](SO4)·p-H 2O [2.9011 (9) Å; Sakai, Ishigami, Yokokawa, Kajiwara & Ito (2003). Acta Cryst. E59, m443-m445]. The complex cation has a crystallographic mirror plane perpendicular to the Pt-Pt bond. The crystal packing is stabilized by both the hydrophilic and hydrophobic layers, which stack alternately along the c axis.
