In the title compound, [Pt2II(C4H 6NO)2(NH3)4](SO4) ·H2O, the intradimer PtII-PtII distance is 2.9749 (11) Å, which is clearly shorter than the value of 3.029 (2) Å reported for a different salt of the same cation, viz. [Pt 2II(C4H6NO)2(NH 3)4]2(PF6)3-(NO 3)-H2O [Matsumoto et al. (1989). Inorg. Chem. 28, 2959- 2964]. The two Pt coordination planes are inclined to each other by 29.9 (5)°, and the average torsional twist of the ligands about the Pt-Pt axis is estimated as 4.3 (8)°.
