A series of luminescent pincer-type cyclometalated platinum­(II) complexes, namely [4-R-(NCN)­PtCN­(C6H3-2,6-Me2)]­PF6 (24; 4-R-(NCHN) represents substituted 1,3-bis­(2′-pyridyl)­benzene ligands), were prepared under phase-transfer conditions. Complex 2 shows two solvatomorphic crystal structures and exhibits vapoluminescent response toward acetonitrile vapor. The photophysical properties of and supramolecular nanowires formed from these complexes were also investigated.
