In the crystal structure of title compound, [NiCl2(C14H32P2)], the NiII atom lies on a twofold rotation axis and shows a slightly distorted square-planar coordination geometry, with a dihedral angle of 10.01 (8)° between the cis-Cl—Ni—Cl and cis-P—Ni—P planes. There is no significant inter­molecular inter­action except very weak C—H⋯Cl inter­actions. The crystal studied was a racemic twin.
