In the title compound, [Ni(C9H7O2)(C16H36N4)]ClO4·H2O, the macrocyclic 5,5,7,12,12,14-hexamethyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane ligand (L) folds around the NiII atom, which is also chelated by the carboxylate group. The geometry is a distorted N4O2 octahedron. In the crystal, adjacent molecules are connected by O—H⋯O and N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into a zigzag chain parallel to .
