A trigonal-bipyramidal cyanide cluster with single-molecule-magnet behavior: synthesis, structure, and magnetic properties of ([MnII(tmphen)2]3[MnIII(CN)6]2). Academic Article uri icon


  • Slow paramagnetic relaxation was observed at low temperatures from ac susceptibility measurements in the form of a frequency-dependent out-of-phase (m signal for the title complex (see picture). This provides compelling evidence that this cluster is a rare example of a cyanide-bridged single-molecule magnet.
