A hetero-nuclear complex Hexakis (μ2-pyridine-2-aldoximato-N, N′, O)-iron (III) -di-nickel (II) nitrate solvate duodenaryhedrate ([FeNi2(PA)6]) has been prepared. The structure of the complex has been characterized by X-ray crystallography. The complex was observed to be active in photo-catalyzing oxidation of Rhodamine B (RhB) and Methyl Orange (MO) in an aqueous solution with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).
