The crystal structure of the title compound, [Ni(S2CNBu1 2)2], has been determined by X-ray diffraction at 295 K and refined by least squares to a residual of 0.058 for 2031 ‘observed’ reflections. Crystals are monoclinic, P21/a, a = 16.705(6), b = 13.062(5), c = ll.799(5) Å, β = 97.03(3)°, Z = 4. The nickel atom is chelated in an approximately square planar array by two symmetric bidentate dithiocarbarnate ligands, (< Ni-S) 2.201 Å. The ligand symmetry is a good approximation to C2; there is a strong interaction between the tertiary hydrogen atoms and nearby sulphur and nickel atoms.
