The structure of the title compound, [Ni(C6H15NO3)(2)](C7H4NO3S)(2), consists of a cationic [Ni(TEA)(2)](2+) and two anionic (SAC)(-) moieties (TEA is triethanolamine and SAC is the saccharinate anion). Two TEA ligands coordinate to the NiII ion through four O atoms and two N atoms acting as tridentate ligands (N,O,O') in a distorted octahedral environment, with the bond distances [d(Ni-O) = 2.078 (2) and 2.082 (2) Angstrom, and d(Ni-N) = 2.108 (2) Angstrom]. SAC anions participate in intermolecular hydrogen bonding with the hydroxyl H atoms of the TEA ligands to form a three-dimensional network.
