Dichloro(1,5-cyclooctadiene)platinum(II) (Pt(cod)Cl2) is an organometallic compound of platinum. This colourless solid is an entry point to other platinum compounds through the displacement of the cod and/or chloride ligands. It is one of several complexes of 1,5-cyclooctadiene.

Dichloro(1,5-cyclooctadiene)platinum(II) is prepared by treating potassium tetrachloroplatinate with the diene:[1]

K2PtCl4 + C8H12 → PtCl2C8H12 + 2 KCl

According to X-ray crystallography, the complex is square planar.[2][3]
