New cyanide-bridged bimetallic compounds of the formula [Ni(dipn)] 3[M(CN)6]2·7H2O (M III = Fe (1), Co (2); dipn = N,N-di(3-aminopropyl)amine) were prepared and their crystal structures and magnetic properties were investigated. They are isostructural. In the crystal of 1 each [Fe(CN) makes bond to three [Ni(dipn)]2- cations to form a 2-D sheet and the 2-D sheets are connected by [Ni(dipn)(H2O)]2- cations providing a 3-D network structure. 1 shows a ferromagnetic ordering in ihe bulk with T C = 7.8 K.
