The favorable spatial organization imposed by the square planar 4,4′-di­(tert-butyl)-2,2′-bipyridine (dbbpy) platinum­(II) complex associated with the electronic and shape complementarity of π-extended tetrathiafulvalene derivatives (exTTF) toward fullerenes is usefully exploited to construct molecular tweezers, which display good affinities for C60.
