In the title compound, [Ni(C16H12N2O5)(CH3OH)]n, the unique NiII ion is coordinated in a distorted octahedral environment by three O atoms and one N atom from a symmetry-unique ligand in the equatorial sites. Coordination of the axial sites is provided by an O atom of a symmetry-unique methanol ligand and an O atom of a carboxylate group from a symmetry-related ligand, thus generating a one-dimensional polymer parallel to . In the crystal, O-HN hydrogen bonds and - interactions, with a centroid-centroid distance of 3.693 (2) Å, form a two-dimensional network parallel to (100). In addition, weak C-HO and C-HN hydrogen bonds complete a three-dimensional network. An intramolecular O-HO hydrogen bond is also observed.
