The structure of the title compound, [Ni(C(15)H(14)N(3)S(2))(2)]·H(2)O, has one mol-ecule in the asymmetric unit, along with a solvent water mol-ecule. The two different Schiff base moieties coordinate to the central Ni(II) ion as tridentate N,N',S-chelating ligands, creating a six-coordinate distorted octa-hedral environment [the smallest angle being 77.43 (7)° and the widest angle being 169.99 (7)°]. The mean planes of the two ligands are nearly orthogonal to each other with an angle of 89.53 (6)°. The packing of the complex is supported by O-H⋯N and O-H⋯S hydrogen bonding between the solvent water mol-ecule and the uncoordinated N and S atoms of neighbouring ligands.

    ABSTRACT: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Ni(C(15)H(14)N(3)S(2))(2)], consists of two independent mol-ecules with similar configurations. Each Ni(2+) cation is coordinated in a cis-mode by two tridentate N,N',S-chelating Schiff base ligands, creating a distorted octa-hedron [the smallest angle being 77.57 (7)° and the widest being 168.97 (7)° for one mol-ecule, and 78.04 (7) and 167.55 (7)° for the second mol-ecule]. The dihedral angle between the mean coordination planes of the two ligands is 86.76 (7)° for one and 89.99 (7)° for the second mol-ecule. π-π inter-actions between neighbouring pyridine rings with plane-to-plane distances of 3.540 (1) and 3.704 (1) Å are observed.

    ABSTRACT: The title compound, [Ni(C13H11N4S2)2], was obtained by the reaction of S-2-picolyldi-thio-carbazate and pyridine-2-carbaldehyde with nickel(II) acetate. The Ni(II) atom is located on a twofold rotation axis and is bonded to four N atoms at distances of 2.037 (8) and 2.109 (9) Å, and to two S atoms at a distance of 2.406 (3) Å, leading to a distorted octa-hedral coordination. The angle between the mean planes of the coordinating moieties of the two symmetry-related tridentate ligands is 83.3 (2)°. In the crystal, complex mol-ecules are linked by weak C-H⋯S hydrogen bonds, π-π inter-actions between the pyridine rings [centroid-centroid distance = 3.775 (9) Å] and C-H⋯π inter-actions. The hydrogen-bonding inter-actions lead to the formation of layers parallel to (010); π-π inter-actions link these layers into a three-dimensional network.
