A neutral nickel complex with the extended tetrathiafulvalene-4,5-dithiolate ligand benzotetrathiafulvalenedithiolate (btdt2-) is synthesized and characterized. From the structural analysis, the neighboring molecules in this complex are stacked in a different way compared to the previously reported single-component metal [Ni(tmdt)2]. The computational studies confirm that the difference in molecular packing results in the variance of conductivity.
