New benzoyl thiourea derivatives and their nickel and copper complexes were synthesized. The structure of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by elemental analysis, FT-IR, and 1H NMR techniques. Four of the synthesized compounds are analyzed by X-ray single crystal diffraction technique. Whereas N,N-dimethyl-N′-(4-fluorobenzoyl)thiourea, N,N-diethyl-N′-(4-fluorobenzoyl)thiourea, and N,N-di-n-butyl-N′-(4-fluorobenzoyl) thiourea crystallize in the monoclinic system, bis(N,N-di-n-propyl-N′-(4-fluorobenzoyl)thioureato) nickel(II) complex crystallizes in the triclinic system. These ligand molecules form dimers through strong intermolecular hydrogen bonds such as N–HS, C–HO, and N–HO. Moreover, there are different types of intramolecular interactions in the crystal structures. Bis(N,N-dimethyl-N′-(4-fluorobenzoyl)thioureato) nickel(II) complex has a nearly square-planar coordination. The distance of nickel atom from the best plane through the coordination sphere is 0.029 Å.
