Bis(2,2'-bipyridyl-[kappa]2N,N')(sulfato-[kappa]2O,O')nickel(II) 2.5-hydrate

T. Iskenderov

Abstract: The title compound, [Ni(SO4)(C10H8N2)2]·2.5H2O, is a nickel(II) complex with a distorted octa­hedral coordination geometry. The NiII atom is bonded by two O atoms of the bidentate chelating sulfate ligand and the four N atoms of two chelating 2,2'-bi­pyridine ligands. The Ni-N bond lengths range from 2.059 (3) to 2.075 (3) Å and the Ni-O bond lengths are 2.098 (3) and 2.123 (3) Å. The bipyridyl ligands are both close to planar (r.m.s. deviations of 0.254 and 0.0572 Å) and are almost orthogonal, making a dihedral angle of 82.77 (1)°. In the crystal, the complex and water mol­ecules are connected by O-H...O hydrogen bonds. Inter­estingly, six water mol­ecules form a chain linking two complex mol­ecules via sulfate O atoms. There are also stacking inter­actions between the aromatic rings of neighbouring 2,2'-bi­pyridine ligands with shortest non-covalent contacts of 3.268 (6), 3.393 (6) and 3.435 (5) Å. One of the three unique water molecules shows half-occupation.
