Abstract: The title compound, [Ni(C25H19N4O2)2], which was obtained by the reaction of nickel(II) perchlorate with 2,6-diformyl-4-methylphenol and (tri-2-pyridylmethyl)amine in methanol solution, is a discrete monometallic complex. The NiII atom is six-coordinated by the phenolate O, imine N and pyridine N atoms from two tridentate Schiff base ligands in a distorted NiN4O2 octahedral geometry. The dihedral angles between the noncoordinated pyridyl rings of each ligand are 72.95 (8) and 69.59 (7)°.
