Abstract

The structure of the title compound, cis-[PtCl 2(C 2H 5N 5)2], was analysed using in-house X-ray powder diffraction data at room temperature. The structure was solved by direct methods and refined using Rietveld analysis. A slightly distorted square-planar coordination geometry is formed around the Pt atom by two Cl atoms and two ring N atoms of the 2-methyl-2H-tetra-zol-5-amine ligands, which are in a cis configuration. The planes of the tetra-zole rings are inclined at 79.7 (7) and 73.8 (6)° with respect to the coordination plane, with their substituents oriented in such a way that the complex as a whole has approximate C 2 symmetry. Inter-molecular N - H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds mediate the formation of a three-dimensional supra-molecular network.
