The title compound, [Ni(C2H5N3O2)(2)(H2O)(2)]Cl-2, contains Ni2+ cations octahedrally coordinated by two bidentate biuret molecules in an O,O'-bidentate coordination mode and two water molecules, the latter in a trans configuration. Two chloride anions provide charge compensation. Numerous N-H...O (mean H...O = 2.17 Angstrom, mean N-H...O = 164degrees and mean N...O = 2.991 Angstrom), N - H...Cl (mean H...Cl = 2.46 Angstrom, mean N-H...Cl = 162degrees and mean N...Cl = 3.278 Angstrom) and O H...Cl (mean H...Cl = 2.19 Angstrom, mean O-H...Cl = 159degrees and mean O...Cl = 3.068 Angstrom) hydrogen bonds help to stabilize the crystal packing.
