The title ionic compound, [Ni(C12H12N2)(H2O)4]SO4·H2O, is composed of an NiII cation coordinated by a chelating 4,4′‐dimethyl‐2,2′‐bipyridine ligand via its two N atoms [mean Ni—N = 2.056 (2) Å] and by four aqua ligands [mean Ni—O = 2.073 (9) Å], the net charge being balanced by an external sulfate anion. The whole structure is stabilized by a solvent water molecule. Even though the individual constituents are rather featureless, they generate an extremely complex supramolecular structure consisting of a central hydrogen‐bonded two‐dimensional hydrophilic nucleus made up of complex cations, sulfate anions and coordinated and solvent water molecules, with pendant hydrophobic 4,4′‐dimethyl‐2,2′‐bipyridine ligands which interact laterally with their neighbours viaπ–π interactions. The structure is compared with closely related analogues in the literature.
