In the title compound, [Pt(C18H15N2)Cl], the PtII centre adopts a distorted square-planar coordination geometry due to the pincer-type monoanionic N-C-N tridentate ligand. The planar complexes stack via π-π inter-actions to form two-dimensional accumulated sheets. This packing pattern is in contrast to that in related pincer-type N-C-N complexes, which exhibit a one-dimensional columnar stacking.
