The bicapped cluster Pt4(μ-CO)4(PMe2Ph)43-HgI2}] (1) was obtained by reacting the cluster compound [Pt4(μ-CO)5(PMe2Ph)4] with one equivalent of [Hg2I2]. The IR and multinuclear NMR data as well as the X-ray crystal structure of the compound are reported. This compound crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/m with Z = 4, a = 10.086(2), b = 18.739(4), c = 24.764(5) A ̊, and β = 90.94(3)°. The structure was refined to R = 0.0787 for 3303 observed reflections (I ≥ 3.0 σ(I)).
