Abstract: In the title compound, [Ni(C16H8N2O4)(C5H5N)3]·C5H5N, the NiII atom is six-coordinated by two O atoms and one N atom from the Schiff base ligand and by three N atoms from three pyridine molecules, forming a distorted octahedral geometry. The Ni-O(phenolate) bond [1.9750 (16) Å] is shorter than the Ni-O(carbonyl) bond [2.0840 (16) Å] and the Ni-N bonds (mean 2.120 Å).
