A new Schiff base ligand of 1-(2, 6-dichlorobenzylidene)-4-phenylthiosemicarbazide(C14H11Cl2N3S) has been synthesized, which crystallizes in monoclinic, space group C2/c with a = 18.551(7) Å, b = 6.963(3) Å, c = 23.185(9) Å and β = 93.122(6)º. The reaction of this ligand with NiAc2·4H2O gives two different Ni(II) complexes, one is general traditional mononuclear and another is unexpected trinuclear, where another quadridentate ligand of 1-(amino-N-phenylmethanethio)-4-phenyl-thiosemicarbazide(C14H14N4S2) is found. The mononuclear complex (C32H26Cl4N8NiS2) crystallizes in triclinic, space group P−1 with a = 11.071(2) Å, b = 11.157(2) Å, c = 15.302(3) Å, α = 76.214(2)º, β = 87.902(2)º and γ = 79.586(3)º. The trinuclear complex (C60H50Cl4N16Ni3S6) crystallizes in orthorhombic, space group Pbcn with a = 19.673(3) Å, b = 16.094(3) Å and c = 20.465(4) Å. In above three compounds, there are some hydrogen bonds which help to construct the three dimensional net works and stabilize the molecular structures.

Graphical Abstract

Two Ni(II) complexes with mononuclear and trinuclear conformations, respectively, have been obtained by one reaction of NiAc2·4H2O with a new Schiff Base ligand of 1-(2, 6-dichlorobenzylidene)-4-phenylthiosemicarbazide.
