Trans-[NiL2(H2O)2](NO3)2(pale blue) (1), trans-[NiL2(NO3)2] (dark blue) (2)**, [L = 1-(2-aminoethyl)piperidine] and trans-[NiL′2(H2O)2](NO3)2(blue) (3) [L = 1-(2-aminoethyl)pyrrolidine] have been prepared. Complexes (1) and (3) upon heating undergo deaquation-anation yielding trans-[NiL2(NO3)2] (dark blue) (2) and cis-[NiL′2(NO3)](NO3) (blue) (3a), respectively. The X-ray single crystal structure of complex (2) has been determined.
