An unusual tetra-nuclear nickel complex resulted, unexpectedly, from a known and common protocol originally aimed at a distinct target. K2[Ni4(ecpdt)6] possesses an uncommon structure based on the combination of four heterovalent nickel atoms and six unsymmetrically substituted dithiolene ligands, the push–pull effect of which was enhanced on coordination with the metal center. Its heterovalency and intrinsic lability was confirmed, inter alia, from the complex’s effective magnetism. The wide range of Ni–S bond distances and associated bond strengths facilitates their comparison to those in the Ni–Fe hydroxylase active site. This novel complex serves further as an experimental model for previous computational studies on the assignment of oxidation states and anti-ferromagnetic coupling in the solid-state tetramer.
