The structure of the title compound, catena-poly[[di-µ-azido-k 4N1l:N 1-bis[[bis(3-aminopropyl)methylamine-k 3N]copper(II)]]-µ-cyano-[dicyanonickel(II)]-µ-cyano], [Cu 2(N3)2(medpt)2{Ni-(CN) 4}]n [medpt is bis(3-aminopropyl)methylamine, C 7H19-N2] or [Cu2Ni(CN) 4(N3)2(C7H19N 3)2]n, is a one-dimensional heterometallic covalent chain where Ni(CN)42- functions as a molecular ion bridge. The Ni atom sits on the centre of inversion. The chain undergoes hydrogen-bonding interactions, forming a three-dimensional supramolecular network.
