Abstract: The title complex salt, [Ni(C3H8N2S)6](NO3)2, consists of an [Ni(Dmtu)6]2+ (Dmtu is N,N'-dimethylthiourea) dication and two nitrate counter-anions. The NiII atom (site symmetry ) is coordinated by the S atoms of six Dmtu ligands within a slightly distorted octahedral environment. The crystal structure is characterized by weak intramolecular N-HS interactions and by intermolecular N-HO hydrogen bonds involving the nitrate anion (site symmetry 3.). These intermolecular interactions lead to the formation of two-dimensional networks lying parallel to the ab plane. The networks are linked via non-classical intermolecular C-HO hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional arrangement.
