Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title complex, (C9H15N2)2[Ni(C4N2S2)2], comprises one 4-dimethylamino-1-ethylpyridinium cation and one half of a [Ni(mnt)2]2- (mnt2- = maleonitriledithiolate) anion; the complete anion is generated by the application of a centre of inversion. The NiII ion is coordinated by four S atoms of two mnt2- ligands and exhibits a square-planar coordination geometry.
