The title compound has been synthesized and characterized. The crystal structure has been determined by single-crystal x-ray analysis from diffractometer data, and refined to R= 0.063 for 1889 observed reflections. Crystals are monoclinic, space group P21/n, witha=21.97(2),b=8.21(1),c=10.44(1) A, and β=101.87(3), and Z=4. Both ligands are coordinated to nickel through sulphur and one oxygen atom to realize thecis form of the complex in the square planar coordination geometry. Bond distances are: Ni-S, 2.14(1), Ni-O, 1.87(1) and 1.90(1) Å. Each nickel atom also forms two close contacts with oxygen atoms from adjacent molecules.
