Diaqua-1κO,3κO-di-μ-cyanido-1:2κ2 N:C;2:3κ2 C:N-dicyanido-2κ2 C-bis­{4,4′-dibromo-2,2′-[propane-1,2-diylbis(nitrilo­methyl­idyne)]diphenolato}-1κ4 O,N,N′,O′;3κ4 O,N,N′,O′-1,3-di­iron(III)-2-nickel(II)


The title compound, [Fe2Ni(C17H14Br2N2O2)2(CN)4(H2O)2] or [{Fe(C17H14Br2N2O2)(H2O)}2( -CN)2{Ni(CN)2}], is isostructural with its Mn-containing analogue. Each Fe atom is chelated by a Schiff base ligand via two N and two O atoms and is additionally coordinated by a water molecule, forming a slightly distorted octahedral geometry. The two Fe centres are bridged by a square-planar Ni(CN)4 unit, which lies on an inversion centre. A two-dimensional network is formed via O—H O and O—H N hydrogen bonds.
