In the title compound, [Pt(C15H11N 3)(C11H11N2)](ClO4) 3-H2O, the PtN4 coordination plane is distorted from a planar geometry owing to the relatively strong intermolecular terpy-terpy interactions, giving rise to a bent structure with respect to the terpy moiety (terpy = 2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine). The coordinated pyridyl plane of N-methyl-4,4′-bipyridinium (MQ) is inclined by 81.7 (1)° with respect to the Pt coordination plane. The dihedral angle between the two pyridyl planes within MQ is 33.5 (2)°.
