Abstract:In the title compound, [NiCl2(C15H26N2)], the chiral alkaloid (6R,7S,8S,14S)-(−)-l-sparteine acts as a bidentate ligand, with two chloride ligands occupying the remaining coordination sites, producing a slightly distorted tetrahedron. The N—Ni—N plane in the title complex is twisted by 81.31 (11)° from the Cl—Ni—Cl plane. Other distortions of the tetrahedron are discussed.
