The title compound, [Pt2(NH3)4(C 5H9O2)2](SO4) ·H2O, does not form an infinite chain, but has discrete dimeric cations in the crystal structure. The intradimer Pt-Pt distance in the pivalate dimer [2.9011 (9) Å] is effectively shorter than that reported for the acetate analog [2.9713 (8) Å], demonstrating the strong electron-donating property of the bridging pivalate ligand.
