The title compound, [KAuCl4(C10H8N2)]n, is a layer coordination polymer with an AuIII—KI metal–metal bond. The Au and K atoms lie on positions of site symmetry 2/m and 222, respectively, and are arranged alternately to form Au—K—Au—K linear chains along the c axis. In addition, the Au atom is coordinated by four Cl atoms, and the K atom coordinated by two N atoms of bipyridine ligands.
