Bis(2,3-pyrazinedithiolate)nickel complex Na[Ni(pdt)2] •2H2O formed one-dimensional stacks of the Ni(pdt)2 units and showed strong antiferromagnetic interactions along the stacking direction. A first-order phase transition between the paramagnetic and diamagnetic states, which was driven by dimerization of the Ni(pdt)2 units, accompanied by coordination bond formation, was observed.
