          Abstract

          The molecule of the title compound, [Ni 4(CH 3O) 4(C 8H 7O 3) 4(CH 3OH) 4], has S 4 symmetry. Each of the four Ni II atoms occupies every other corner of a cube, with the alternate corners occupied by μ 3-methano­late bridging groups linking to three Ni II atoms. Each Ni II atom is in an O 6 octa­hedral coordination environment formed by three O atoms from three μ 3-methano­late groups, one from methanol, and two others from a bidentate 2-formyl-6-meth­oxy­phenolate ligand. The Ni—O bond distances range from 2.0020 (14) to 2.0938 (14) Å, the cis bond angles range from 81.74 (6) to 97.63°, and the trans bond angles range from 168.76 (5) to 175.22 (6)°. There are bifurcated hydrogen-bonding inter­actions between the coordinated methanol OH groups and both the phenolic and meth­oxy O atoms of an adjoining 2-formyl-6-meth­oxy­phenolate moiety. In addition, there are weak inter­molecular C—H⋯O inter­actions involving the meth­oxy O atoms.
