The reactions of NiCl(2)·2H(2)O or [NiCl(2)(DME)] (DME = dimethoxyethane) with 2-methyl-1-(pyridin-2-yl)propan-2-ol (HL) and 2-(pyridin-2-yl)ethanol (HL(Et)), in a 1 : 1 ratio, afforded the tetranuclear, cubane-type clusters [Ni(μ(3)-Cl)Cl(HL)](4) () and [Ni(μ(3)-Cl)Cl(HL(Et))](4) (), respectively. These are tetramers of the hypothetical mononuclear formula-isomers [NiCl(2)(HL)] and [NiCl(2)(HL(Et))], respectively, and represent rare examples of structurally characterized cubane-like transition metal dihalogenide complexes. The 2 : 1 reactions between HL or HL(Et) and [NiCl(2)(DME)] yielded, instead, the mononuclear [NiCl(2)(HL)(2)] () and the dinuclear complex [Ni(μ-Cl)(HL(Et))(2)](2)Cl(2) (), respectively. The reaction of with NaOH afforded selectively the cubane-type cluster [Ni(μ(3)-OH)Cl(HL)](4) () which differs only in the nature of the capping anions (Cl vs. OH, respectively). The magnetic properties of the unusual tetranuclear cubanes and have been investigated and revealed in both cases single-molecule magnet (SMM) behaviour.
