Three-dimensional X-ray diffractometer data have defined the structure of the title compound. The crystals are monoclinic, space group P21/c, with a 11.88, b 14.13, c 17.49 Å, β 106.9°, Z 4. 1626 independent reflexion intensities (Mo-Kα) formed the basis of the analysis and structure refinement (R1 0.072). The closo-arrangement is based on two PtFe distances of 2.597(5) and 2.530(5) Å and one FeFe bond length of 2.758(8)Å; each iron has four terminal carbonyl ligands, the platinum having terminal carbonyl and triphenylphosphine ligands and a planar stereochemistry.
