X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy has been used to determine the oxidation state of nickel in the oxidized nickel (II) dimethylglyoxime complex. Core level binding energies for the Ni(2p), N(1s), and O(1s) levels; the presence or absence of shake-up satellites on the Ni(2p) levels; and the analysis of intensity data are consistent only with an assignment of +3. Structures consistent with the data are proposed for both the solid-and the solution-phase complexes.
