In the title compound, (C16H36N)2[Pt(C4N2S2)2], the PtII center adopts a distorted square-planar geometry due to the 4-membered chelate rings formed by coordination to the S atoms of the 1,1-dicyano-ethyl-ene-2,2-dithiol- ate (i-mnt) ligands [bite angle 74.35 (4)°]. The bond distances in the coordinated i-mnt ligands indicate some delocalization of the π-system.
