In the title mononuclear nickel(II) complex, [Ni(C12H17N2O2)(NCS)], the metal atom is four-coordinated in a tetra­hedrally distorted square-planar geometry by the phenolate O atom, the imine N atom and the amine N atom of the Schiff base ligand and by the N atom of a thio­cyanate ligand. In the crystal structure, centrosymmetrically related mol­ecules are linked into dimers through inter­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds. These dimers are further connected by inter­molecular C—H⋯S hydrogen bonds, forming chains running parallel to [101].

Comment top

Nickel(II) complexes with Schiff bases have been extensively studied (Campbell & Urbach, 1973; Wallis & Cummings, 1974; Polt et al., 2003; Mukhopadhyay et al., 2003). In the title compound, the Ni atom is four-coordinate by the phenolate O atom, imine N atom, and amine N atom of the Schiff base ligand, and by the N atom of a thiocyanate ligand, forming a tetrahedrally distorted square-planar geometry (Fig. 1). Bond lengths and angles involving the metal atom are comparable with those observed in similar complexes (Montazerozohori et al., 2009; Zhu et al., 2004; Zhu et al., 2006). The Ni1/N1/O1/C1/C2/C7 six-membered chelate ring is approximately planar (maximum deviation 0.063 (4) Å for atom N1, the Ni1/N1/N2/C8/C8 five-membered chelate ring assumes an envelope conformation, with atom C9 displaced by 0.589 (6) Å from the mean plane of the other atoms. In the crystal structure, centrosymmetrically related complex molecules are linked through intermolecular N—H···O hydrogen bonds (Table 1), forming a dimer (Fig. 2). The dimers are further connected by C—H···S hydrogen bonds, forming chains running parallel to [101].

Experimental top

Equimolar quantities (0.1 mmol each) of N-ethylethane-1,2-diamine, ammonium thiocyanate, and Ni(CH3COO)2.4H2O were mixed and stirred in a methanol solution for 30 min at reflux. After keeping the filtrate in air for a few days, red block crystals were formed on slow evaporation of the solvent.

Refinement top

Atom H2 was located in a difference Fourier map and refined isotropically, with the N—H distance restrained to 0.90 (1) Å. Other H atoms were placed in calculated positions and constrained to ride on their parent atoms, with C—H distances in the range 0.93–0.97 Å, and with Uiso(H) = 1.2Ueq(C) or 1.5Ueq(C) for methyl H atoms.

Special details top

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
