Abstract: The title complex, [Ni(C4H4O4S)(C3H4N2)3]·H2O, displays a distorted octahedral NiN3O2S coordination geometry, formed by three imidazole (imid) ligands and one thiodiacetate dianion. The NiII atom is displaced from one of the imid planes, and the angle between the corresponding Ni-N bond and the imid plane is 21.94 (19)°. This spatial orientation is stabilized by an intermolecular C-H interaction between one imid ligand and the C-H bond of an adjacent imid ligand.
