The molecular structure of the title complex, [Ni2(C11H13NO3)2]·CH3OH, contains two NiII atoms and two doubly deprotonated 6-methoxy-2-{[(3-oxidopropyl)imino]methyl}phenolate ligands. The NiII atoms are each four-coordinated in a distorted square-planar geometry by three O atoms and one N atom derived from the phenolate ligands. The solvent molecule is linked to the complex molecule by two O-H...O hydrogen bonds.
