The presence of iodine and iodide ions in tetracyanonickelates inclusion compounds with the general formula Ni(B)mNi(CN)4 . n H2O (B = NH3 or ethylenediamine) changes the properties of these compounds. High frequency conductance measurements in the range of 10 - 105 Hz show that the products with ethylenediamine ligands have a higher electrical conductivity than those with NH3 ligands. The differences in the electrical properties between the compounds studied are mainly caused by chemical composition, structure and morphology.
