In the title ionic compound, [Pt(C 17H 23)(C 34H 33P 3)](BF 42CH 2C l2, the Pt II atom adopts a square-planar coordination geometry with the large (Z)-8-mesityl-cyclo-oct-4-en- 1-yl group occupying the fourth coordination site. The (triphos)Pt moiety and the mesityl group are attached to the cyclo-oct-4-ene motif at the 1- and 8-position in a syn configuration. The (BF4) - anion and one of the dichloromethane solvate molecules each are disordered over two sets of sites.
