Two new Hofmann-diaminoheptane-type clathrates of the form M(1,7-diaminoheptane) Ni(CN)4·G (M = Ni or Co; G = chlorobenzene, m-xylene or naphthalene) have been prepared in powder form. Their spectral data were compared with those of the corresponding host. Their structure consists of corrugated polymeric layers of {M-Ni(CN)4} ∞ with the 1,7-diaminoheptane molecules bound directly to the metal (M).
