{Lewis-base mediated fragmentation of polymeric nickel(II) fumarate and oxalate are attempted using chelating σ-donor diamines like ethylenediamine (en) and 1,3-diaminopropane (dap) in various conditions which yielded [Ni(en)3](fum)·3H2O (1), [Ni(en)3](ox) (2), [Ni(dap)2(fum)] (3) and [Ni(dap)(ox)]·2H2O (4). While 1 and 2 are molecular products each containing octahedral [Ni(en)3]2+ moieties and the anionic dicarboxylate species, 3 and 4 are dap-incorporated polymeric products. The fumarate derivative 1 containing [Ni(en)3]2+ moieties crystallizes in the monoclinic space group C2/c with a = 17.899(4) Å
