The title complex comprises two Ni2+ ions, four fluorinated ligands and two water mol-ecules in a centrosymmetric dinuclear complex. This compound was crystallized from benzene-CH2Cl2, and two types of crystals, viz. the title benzene tetra-solvate, [Ni2(C 15HF10O2)4(H2O) 2]·4C6H6, (I), and the previously reported benzene disolvate, [Ni2(C15HF10O 2)4(H2O)2]·2C 6H6, (II) [Hori et al. (2009). Bull. Chem. Soc. Jpn, 82, 96-98], were obtained as pseudopolymorphs. In the crystal structure of (I), the four benzene solvent mol-ecules inter-act closely with all the penta-fluoro-phenyl groups of the complex through arene-perfluoro-arene inter-actions. The mol-ecular structures of the two compounds show essentially the same conformation, although the benzene mol-ecules are accommodated in a columnar packing in (I), while they are isolated from each other in (II).
