The title compound, [Ni(C4H8N3)2]·CH3OH, contains two independent NiII atoms, each located on an inversion center and coordinated by four N atoms from two 1-[(1-iminoethyl)imino]ethyl}azanide ligands in a square-planar geometry. N-H...N, N-H...O and O-H...N hydrogen bonds link the complex molecules and methanol solvent molecules into a corrugated layer parallel to (001).
