Abstract

The title compound, [NiCl2(C11H14N2O)(2)], was synthesized from 1-(2-ethoxyethyl)benzimidazole and nickel dichloride in ethanol and is isostructural with its cobalt analogue. It shows a distorted tetrahedral geometry about Ni-II, involving two Cl atoms and two benzimidazole N atoms. The crystal structure is stabilized by C-H...Cl and C-H...O interactions.
