The intercalation of acetone and butan-2-one in vanadyl and niobyl phosphates and niobyl arsenate is reported. All intercalates prepared are tetragonal and their basal spacings are close to each other. The intercalates contain one molecule of the ketone per formula unit. The existence of keto-enol tautomerism of guest molecules in interlayer space is assumed.
