This article presents the syntheses, crystal structures, topological features and magnetic properties of two NiII/NaI coordination clusters formulated [Ni3 IINa(L1)3(HL1)(MeOH)2] (1) and [Ni6 IINa(L1)5(CO3)(MeO)(MeOH)3(H2O)3]·4(MeOH) 2(H2O) [2 4(MeOH) 2(H2O)] where H2L1 is the semi-rigid Schiff base ligand (E)-2-(2-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzylideneamino)-phenol). Compound 1 possesses a rare Ni3 IINaI cubane (3M4-1) topology, and compound 2 is the first example in polynuclear Ni/Na chemistry that exhibits a 2,3,4M7-1 topology.
