A toroidal magnetic moment in the absence of conventional total magnetic moment is observed {Dy-6} ring. The reason for the net toroidal arrangement of the local Magnetic moments is the high symmetry of the complex in combination with strong intra-molecular dipolar interactions between Dy ions. The description of single ion and inter ion anisotropic magnetic interactions is achieved here for the first time fully ab initio, Le, without use of phenomenological parameters.
