In the title compound, [Ni(CH3CO2)2(C2H7NO)2], the NiII cation, located on an inversion center, is N,O-chelated by two 2-aminoethanol molecules and further coordinated by two monodendate acetate anions in a slightly distorted octahedral geometry. The latter is stabilized by intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bonds involving the non-coordinated O atom of the acetate and the H atom of the hydroxy group of the 2-aminoethanol ligand. In the crystal, N-HO hydrogen bonds link the molecules into a three-dimensional supramolecular framework that involves (a) the coordinated acetate O atom and one of the H atoms of the amino group and (b) the non-coordinated acetate O atom and the other H atom of the amino group.
