Reactions of 5-R-2-hydroxybenzophenone S-methylthiosemicarbazones (R: H, Br, Cl) and 2-hydroxy-benzaldehydes in the presence of NiCl2 yielded template complexes by chelating with two of the ligands in the monoanionic form. The N4O2 complexes of the thiosemicarbazones show distorted-octahedral geometry around nickel(II). The compounds were characterized by elemental analysis, conductivity and magnetic measurements, UV-Vis, IR, 1H-NMR, and mass spectra. Crystal structure of bis-N1-(2-hydroxy-5-bromo-phenyl)(phenyl)methylene-N4-(2-hydroxy-phenyl)methylene-S-methyl-thiosemicarbazidato-Ni(II) was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction.
