Abstract: In the title structure, [Ni(C11H15N2O)(C11H16N2O)]ClO4, there are two independent ion pairs in the asymmetric unit. In each cation, the NiII atom is six-coordinated in a slightly distorted octahedral geometry by two phenolate O atoms, two imine N atoms and two amine N atoms from two Schiff base ligands, in one of which the phenolate O atom is protonated. In the crystal structure, anions and cations are linked through intermolecular O-HO, N-HO and weak C-HO hydrogen bonds, forming one-dimensional chains containing hydrogen-bonded cation dimers.
