Dichloro(1,5-cyclooctadiene)platinum(II) (Pt(cod)Cl2) is an organometallic compound of platinum. This colourless solid, which is a commercially available, is an entry point to other platinum compounds through the displacement of the cod and/or chloride ligands. It is prepared from potassium tetrachloroplatinate and the diene:[1]

K2PtCl4 + C8H12 → PtCl2C8H12 + 2 KCl
