Abstract: In the title complex, [Ni(C10H9O2)2(C10H17N)2], the Ni atom, which occupies a special position at an inversion centre, has an octahedral environment formed by four O atoms of two chelate benzoylacetonates [Ni-O 2.0409 (16) and 2.0187 (16) Å, and O-Ni-O 90.36 (6)°] and two N atoms of the adamantylamine ligands [Ni-N = 2.176 (2) Å]. The amine H atoms of the adamantylamine ligands do not participate in any hydrogen bonds, due to their steric shielding and the lack of accessible acceptors.
