Original Paper


Two new salts based on [Ni(tdas)2]2− (tdas2− = 1,2,5-thiadiazole-3,4-dithiolate) anion, [Bz4EtPy]2[Ni(tdas)2] (1) and [4ClBz4EtPy]2[Ni(tdas)2] (2), have been prepared by reaction of Na2tdas, NiCl2·6H2O, and [Bz4EtPy]Br ([Bz4EtPy]+ = 1-benzyl-4-ethylpyridinium) or [4ClBz4EtPy]Br ([4ClBz4EtPy]+ = 1-(4′-chlorobenzyl)-4-ethylpyridinium), and characterized by elemental analyses, UV, IR, MS spectrum, molar conductivity and single crystal X-ray diffraction. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses indicate that the two salts crystallize in a triclinic system with space group P−1. The unit cell contains two [Bz4EtPy]+/[4ClBz4EtPy]+ and one [Ni(tdas)2]2− anion in which the anion exhibits a quasi-planar structure. The crystals of 1 and 2 are stabilized through C–H···S and C–H···Ni hydrogen bonds, π···π stacking interactions and S···Cl short interactions.

Graphical Abstract
