Crystal-to-crystal transformation of magnets based on heptacyanomolybdate(III) involving dramatic changes in coordination mode and ordering temperature. Academic Article uri icon


  • Two for one: Two unusual magnets based on the [Mo(CN) 7] 4- building block with Mn II linkers have been prepared with different topological 3D networks. Conversion of one into the other is triggered by dehydration during a single-crystal to single-crystal event (see picture; Mn: dark red, Mo: pink, C: green, N: blue, O: red). 2012 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
