The crystal structure of [Pt2(C3H3N2)2(C 10H8N2)2]]-(BF4) 2.H2O, has been determined by X-ray diffraction. The six-membered ring consisting of the two Pt atoms and the four pyrazolyl N atoms has a boat-shaped conformation in which each Pt atom is located 1.14 (1) Å above the plane defined by the four pyrazolyl N atoms. The two platinum coordination planes are canted at an angle of 77.9 (3)°, which is 8.1 (6)° smaller than the dihedral angle between the two bipyridyl planes. The dihedral angle between the two pyrazolyl planes is 83.4 (6)°. These angular strains are found to be caused by the intramolecular steric repulsion between the bipyridyl H and pyrazolyl N atoms.
