The intermetallic phase SrNi2-xSb2 was synthesized by arc melting mixtures of the elements and subsequent annealing under argon, and its structure was investigated by means of both powder and single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods. It crystallizes with the ThCr2Si2 type (tI10, I4/mmm) and has a homogeneity range of x = 0.15(1)-0.28(1), which does not include the exact stoichiometric 1:2:2 composition. The crystal structure of the phase SrNi2-xSb2 is built from layers of edge-sharing Ni1-xSb4 tetrahedra, which are separated by Sr atoms along the c direction. Magnetic measurements of SrNi2-xSb2 showed no superconductive transition above 1.8 K.
