Inclusion compounds with the general formula Cd(NH2(CH2) n NH2)Ni(CN)4·xG were prepared forn=4 to 8, and for G of such an aromatic guest molecule as pyrrole, benzene, aniline, toluene, toluidine, xylene, xylidine, dichlorobenzene, trimethylbenzene, tetramethylbenzene, ethylbenzene, styrene, or isopropylbenzene, with varyingx. Generally, longer chain lengths of α,ω-diamine in the host permit the inclusion of bulkier guest molecules. However, the presence of an amino group on the phenyl ring of the guest appears to impart a special affinity with the hosts.
