[NiL2][ClO4]2 complexes (L = terpyridine 1,1′1″-trioxide, terpyridine 1,1″ -dioxide and terpyridine 1-oxide) have been prepared and crystallographically characterised; data shows a predictable variation in ligand conformation, such as facial or meridonal binding, which is in agreement with DFT calculations.
