The supramolecular crystal {[Pr(DMFA)] 3[Ni II(Hbim) 3] 2I} n with intricate chiral networks of [Ni II(Hbim) 3] - molecules is reported. It includes a cationic architecture as a guest, constructed from chiral nanotubes that penetrate I - chains with spiral channels wrapped by triple helices. The I - chains have AC conductivity in crystals like a molecular cable.
