(2-Amino-7-methyl-4-oxidopteridine-6-carboxylato-[kappa]3O4,N5,O6)aqua(ethane-1,2-diamine-[kappa]2N,N')nickel(II) dihydrate

Abstract: The NiII atom in the title complex, [Ni(C8H5N5O3)(C2H8N2)(H2O)]·2H2O, is six-coordinated in a distorted octahedral geometry by a tridentate 2-amino-7-methyl-4-oxidopteridine-6-carboxylate (pterin) ligand, a bidentate ancillary ethane-1,2-diamine (en) ligand and a water molecule. The pterin ligand forms two chelate rings. The en and pterin ligands are arranged nearly orthogonally [dihedral angle between the mean plane of the en molecule and the pterin ring = 77.1 (1)°]. N-H...O, O-H...N and O-H...O hydrogen bonds link the complex molecules and lattice water molecules into a three-dimensional network. [pi]-[pi] interactions are observed between the pyrazine and pyrimidine rings [centroid-centroid distance = 3.437 (2) Å].
