The first 4d/4f single-molecule magnet containing a {RuIII2DyIII2} core

Author affiliations


We report the synthesis, structure and magnetic properties of the first 4d–4f single-molecule magnet. The complex [RuIII2DyIII2(OMe)2(O2CPh)4(mdea)2(NO3)2] displays a butterfly type core, with an anisotropy barrier of 10.7 cm−1. Ab initio and DFT calculations provide insight into the observed magnetic behaviour.
