A bulk material comprising stacked nanosheets of nickel bis(dithiolene) complexes is investigated. The average oxidation number is -3/4 for each complex unit in the as-prepared sample; oxidation or reduction respectively can change this to 0 or -1. Refined electrical conductivity measurement, involving a single microflake sample being subjected to the van der Pauw method under scanning electron microscopy control, reveals a conductivity of 1.6 × 10(2) S cm(-1), which is remarkably high for a coordination polymeric material. Conductivity is also noted to modulate with the change of oxidation state. Theoretical calculation and photoelectron emission spectroscopy reveal the stacked nanosheets to have a metallic nature. This work provides a foothold for the development of the first organic-based two-dimensional topological insulator, which will require the precise control of the oxidation state in the single-layer nickel bisdithiolene complex nanosheet (cf. Liu, F. et al. Nano Lett. 2013, 13, 2842).
