Abstract: In the hydrothermally prepared title coordination polymer, [Ni(C2H6NO3S)2(C12H10N4)]n, the NiII ion and the 1,4-bis(1H-imidazol-1-yl)benzene ligand occupy special positions on inversion centers. The metal ion shows a slightly distorted octahedral coordination geometry, being linked to two N atoms of two 1,4-bis(imidazol-1-yl)benzene ligands and to two O and two N atoms of two chelating 2-aminoethanesulfonate ligands. The 1,4-bis(imidazol-1-yl)benzene ligands bridge symmetry-related NiII ions forming polymeric chains along the  direction.
