Physical and structural properties of the MMX-type halogen-bridged mixed-valence complex, Pt2(dta)4I (dta = CH3CS2) were investigated. This complex exhibits metallic conduction above room temperature, which is the first observation in halogen-bridged 1-D transition-metal complexes. Below 300 K, the metal-semiconductor transition was observed. The mixed-valence state of this compound is discussed.
