A Ni(II) complex, [Ni(pydca)(bim)3] (pydca = pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylate, bim = benzimidazole) has been prepared by hydrothermal synthesis. It is characterized by elemental analysis, IR and thermal analysis. The crystal structure is determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The mononuclear complexes are linked by N–H···O hydrogen bonds. The title complex has good thermal stability and exhibits good fluorescence properties in ethanol solution at room temperature.
