The title cyclometalated platinum(II) complex with 2-(4-bromophenyl)pyridinato and acetylacetonato ligands, [Pt(C11H7BrN)(C5H7O2)], consists of two crystallographically non-equivalent dimers, each stacked by π-π interactions with distances of ≃ 3.4Å. In both dimers, the platinum(II) complexes are arranged antiparallel to each other. Each complex exhibits a slightly distorted square-planar coordination environment around the central Pt(II) atom. The dihedral angles between two chelate rings including the PtII atom in these complexes are 0.08(12) and 1.54(9)°.
