In the title compounds, {2,2'-[2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediyl-bis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenolato-kappa (4) N,N',O,O'}nickel(II), [Ni(C19H20N2O2)], and {2,2'-[2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediylbis(nitrilomethylidyne)]diphenolato-kappa (4) N,N',O,O'}copper(II), [Cu(C19H20N2O2)], the Ni-II and Cu-II atoms are coordinated by two iminic N and two phenolic O atoms of the N,N'-bis(salicylidene)-2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediaminate (SALPD (2-), C17H16 -N2O22-) ligand. The geometry of the coordination sphere is planar in the case of the Ni-II complex and distorted towards tetrahedral for the Cu-II complex. Both complexes have a cis configuration imposed by the chelate ligand. The dihedral angles between the N/Ni/O and N/Cu/O coordination planes are 17.20 (6) and 35.13 (7)degrees, respectively.
