In the title compound, [Pt2(C10H8N 2)2(C5H5N2) 2](NO3)2·-4H2O, two 2-aminopyridinate ligands bridge two Pt atoms in a head-to-tail fashion, the Pt - Pt distance being 2.8724 (6) Å. The dimers form a one-dimensional stack based on π-π stacking interactions between the bpy (2,2′-bipyridine) units, where the interplanar separations are estimated as 3.44 (2) and 3.45 (1) Å. No metal-metal interaction exists between the dimers.
