The complex dibromobipyridylplatinum(II), Pt(bipy)Br2, crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C2/c with a = 17.262(5) Å, b = 9.388(2) Å, c = 7.557(2) Å, β = 113.47(2)°, and Z = 4. The complex is isomorphous to the monomeric copper derivative, Cu(bipy)Br 2. The 195Pt NMR spectrum shows the typical line broadening effect caused by coordinated nitrogen-14. The complex resonates at -1897 ppm with a half-height peak width of 1300 Hz. The structure is compared with the analogous structures Pt(bipy)(X)2 (X = Cl and I) and Pd(bipy)Br2.
