A new supramolecular complex, [NiCl2(Hdmpz)2(H2O)2] (Hdmpz = 3,5-dimethylpyrazole), has been synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, mass spectrometry, conductivity measurements, IR and UV-Vis spectroscopies. The behavior of the complex in different solvents is described. The complex has also been characterized crystallographically: the Ni(II) atom is surrounded by two Cl atoms, two N atoms from Hdmpz and two molecules of water to attain a pseudo octahedral structure. All the ligands are trans-orientated. In this structure, intermolecular interactions have been identified and studied. Extended structure analyses revealed a novel two-dimensional network in the (1 0 0) plane formed by intermolecular O-H···Cl and N-H···Cl hydrogen bonding interactions. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
