The macrocyclic tetradentate Ni(II) compound was obtained in a reaction and determined by X-ray diffraction. The crystal structure shows that the molecule is centrosymmetric, and Ni atom located in a square planar coordination environment. The two [(iPrO)2PS2]- anions are outside the macrocycle complex to balance. The Ni-N bond lengths are in the range of 1.906(2) to 1.950(2)Å.
