The hydrothermal reactions of MCl2·6H2O (M = Co, Ni) NaVO3, 4,4′-dipyridylamine (dpa), and H2O yield materials of the type [M(Hdpa)2V4O12] (M = Co (1), Ni (2)). The two-dimensional structures of 1 and 2 are constructed from bimetallic oxide networks {MV4O12}n2n- with monodentate Hdpa† projecting the protonated ring into the interlamellar region. The oxide network may be described as ruffled chains of corner-sharing {VO4} tetrahedra linked by {NiO4N2} octahedra into the two-dimensional assembly. Crystal data: C10H10Co0.5N3O 6V2 (1), monoclinic P21/c, a = 10.388(1) Å, b = 7.6749(7) Å, c = 16.702(2) Å, β = 102.516(1)°, Z = 4. C10H10N3- Ni0.5O6V2 (2), monoclinic, P21/c, c = 10.3815(2) Å, b = 7.7044(2) Å, c = 16.6638(4) Å, β = 102.573(1)° Z = 4.
