    The title compd. is monoclinic, space group P21/c, with a 9.3718(14), b 17.085(3), c 14.351(2) Å, and β 95.121(4)°; Z = 4, dc = 1.551; R = 0.047, Rw(F2) = 0.109 for 5241 reflections. The compd. has a tetradentate diamine-diimine ligand in a tetrahedrally twisted square-planar coordination to singlet ground-state Ni(II), with a mean Ni-N distance of 1.909(3) Å. The cation has approx. mirror symmetry, apart from the axially oriented C6 Me-substituent. [on SciFinder(R)]
