The crystal structure of the title compound, [Ni(en)3] (C1O4)2, H2O, has been determined from singlecrystal X-ray diffraction data at 295(1) K and refined by least squares to a residual of 0·093 for 1400 ‘observed’ reflections. Crystals are orthorhombic, Pbca, a 17·043(7), b 15·922(6), c 13·496(5) Å, Z 8. The precision of the structure determination is adversely affected by very high perchlorate thermal motion. <Ni-N> is 2·13 Å.
