The new ligand 4,5-bis (2-pyridylmethylsulfanyl)-4',5'-bis(cyanoethylthio)tetrathiafulvalene (BPM-BCET-TTF) and its nickel(II) complex have been prepared and crystallographically characterized. The Ni(II) complex shows octahedral geometry around the metal ion with the coordination site occupied by the pyridyl nitrogen atoms, the thioether sulfur atoms of the ligand and cis coordination of the halide ions. Key words. Nickel (II) complex; 4,5-bis(2-pyridylmethylsulfanyl)-4',5'-bis(cyanoethylthio) tetrathiafulvalene
