In the crystal structure of the title compound, [PtCl2(C 10H9N3)]·2H2O, the square-planar platinum complexes form one-dimensional columns based on the π-π-stacking interactions between the 4-amino-2,2′-bipyridine ligands, where the plane-to-plane separations are 3.45 (1) and 3.47 (1) Å. The Pt⋯Pt distances in the column are 5.1214 (7) and 6.1648 (7) Å, suggesting no metal-metal interaction. Intermolecular hydrogen bonds are formed among the water molecules, the amino groups, and the coordinated Cl atoms.
