The title complex triaqua (3-hydroxy-5-hydroxymethyl- 2-methylpyridine-4- carboxaldehyde-3-methylisothiosemicarbazone- k3,O3,N 7,N10)Ni(II) nitrate ([Ni(PLITSC) (H2O) 3](NO3)2, 1) represents the second transition metal complex incorporating an isothiosemicarbazide-pyridoxal based Schiff base that has been crystallographically characterized. Complex 1 crystallizes in a P21/n space group,with lattice constants: a = 11.2254(1) Å , b = 12.9941(2) Å , c = 12.8663(2), β = 96,7713(5)°, V = 1863.64(4) Å 3, Z = 4, F(000) = 1016, R1 = 0.0681, wR 2 = 0.1201. The central Ni(II) cation is found in a six-coordinate octahedral geometry formed by the tridentate Schiff base ligand PLITSC and three water molecules. The identity of 1 was further confirmed by elemental analysis, IR spectra, and conductometric and magnetochemical measurements.
