In this work, we report solvent-induced complexation properties of a new NS tetradentate bis-thiosemicarbazone ligand (), prepared by the condensation of 4-phenylthiosemicarbazide with bis-aldehyde, namely 2,2'-(ethane-1,2-diylbis(oxy)dibenzaldehyde, towards nickel(II). Using ethanol as a reaction medium allowed the isolation of a discrete mononuclear homoleptic complex (), for which its crystal structure contains three independent molecules, namely , and , in the asymmetric unit. The doubly deprotonated ligand in the structure of is coordinated in a cis-manner through the azomethine nitrogen atoms and the thiocarbonyl sulfur atoms. Read More
