Abstract: The title compound, [Ni(C13H11N4S2)2], was obtained by the reaction of S-2-picolyldi­thio­carbazate and pyridine-2-carbaldehyde with nickel(II) acetate. The NiII atom is located on a twofold rotation axis and is bonded to four N atoms at distances of 2.037 (8) and 2.109 (9) Å, and to two S atoms at a distance of 2.406 (3) Å, leading to a distorted octa­hedral coordination. The angle between the mean planes of the coordinating moieties of the two symmetry-related tridentate ligands is 83.3 (2)°. In the crystal, complex mol­ecules are linked by weak C-H...S hydrogen bonds, [pi]-[pi] inter­actions between the pyridine rings [centroid-centroid distance = 3.775 (9) Å] and C-H...[pi] inter­actions. The hydrogen-bonding inter­actions lead to the formation of layers parallel to (010); [pi]-[pi] inter­actions link these layers into a three-dimensional network.
