Since the embarkation of C – S cross-coupling from aryl halides with thiols a handful of works have been contemplated in aqueous medium. Herein, we report an example of a water soluble Ni-Schiff base complex as the green catalyst for the synthesis of thioethers. We have synthesized a Ni-Schiff base complex [NiL(H2O)2 ](ClO4)2 using N 4 -donor Schiff base ligand (1,3-bis(((E)-pyridin-2-ylmethylene)amino)propan-2-ol) and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction (SC-XRD) study along with different spectral analyses. The complex is mono-nuclear and cationic in nature having two perchlorate anions. Two water molecules remain coordinated with the Ni(II)-centre. The hydrogen bonding interaction through coordinated water and perchlorate anions connect the monomeric units to form 2D supramolecular structure. Based on its aqueous solubility, the complex has been used for the catalytic C – S cross-coupling reaction between aryl iodide and aryl or alkyl thiols using TBAB at 60 ◦ C in aqueous media (yield 92%). At room temperature, an isolated yield of 57% can be achieved. This environmentally benign protocol is paramount in view of the environmental sustainability.
