In the title compound, [Ni(C24H36P3)Cl], the NiII atom adopts a distorted square-planar geometry with the two neutral P atoms of the tridentate ligand trans to one another. Bond lengths and angles of the phosphide P atom feature a pyramidal geometry of the donor atom, which forms a single bond with the NiII atom, retaining a stereochemically active lone pair.
