Cations and anions in [Pt(C10H8N2)(C 5H6N2)2][Pt(C2O 4)2]·-2H2O stack alternately along the a axis, giving a one-dimensional chain of the Magnus's green salt type. Intrachain π-π-stacking interactions are achieved between the oxalate and the 2,2′-bipyridine moieties, where the plane-to-plane separations are 3.41 (7) and 3.46 (1) Å. Two different Pt⋯Pt distances [3.9294 (6) and 5.0302 (7) Å] alternate along the chain.
