The title material was synthesised by the treatment of PtCl2 with 2-(4′-fluorophenyl)-2-oxazoline in a MeOH solution. The crystal system is monoclinic (space group P21/n; Z = 2); the unit-cell dimensions are a = 7.7152(7)Å, b = 11.517(1)Å, c = 11.168(1)Å with β = 110.123(2)°; V = 931.8(2)Å3). The final R value was 0.0149 (2030 observed reflections: I > 2σ(I)). The Pt atom coordinates with two N-bound oxazolines in addition to two (transoidally disposed) chloride atoms; these interactions result in a square planar geometry around the metal center.
