We synthesized a series of one-dimensional (1D) iodo-bridged platinum compounds with long alkyl chains on the counterions. In the compounds, the shortest Pt⋯Pt distance and the smallest band gap thus far reported were achieved. These compounds were found to be in a CDW state by using synchrotron X-ray diffraction measurements.
