In this work we present the synthesis, and experimental and theoretical analysis of a binuclear nickel(II) complex coordinated to a new phthalazine dihydrazone-based ligand. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis of the metal complex shows that the coordination geometry around each nickel(II) atom is distorted octahedral. DFT calculations predict that the magnetic exchange coupling constant of the binuclear nickel(II) complex is predominantly anti-ferromagnetic.
