Molecular cube of Re(II) and Mn(II) that exhibits single-molecule magnetism. Academic Article uri icon


  • A pseudocubic, paramagnetic cluster of ReII and MnII, [{MnCl}4{Re(triphos)(CN)3}4], has been prepared, and its magnetic properties have been investigated. Antiferromagnetic coupling is observed between the "S = 1/2" ReII and S = 5/2 MnII centers resulting in an effective S = 8 ground state. AC susceptibility studies reveal that the molecule is a single-molecule magnet with an effective barrier for magnetization reversal of Ueff = 8.8 cm-1.
