The dinuclear title compound, [FePtCl2(C17H14P)(C23H23NO3P)]x1.25CH2Cl2, has a slightly distorted cis-PtCl2P2 square-planar geometry around the Pt atom, and the ferrocenylphosphine ligands are staggered at an angle of 29.4 (2) deg. about Pt. In the crystal structure, the complex forms centrosymmetric dimers via two strong intermolecular O—H-O bonds resulting in R22(8) rings. A weak intramolecular N—H-Cl bond leads to an S(8) motif. The solvent is highly disordered and has not been modelled with discrete atoms.
