Abstract

The combination of MnBr2 center dot 4H(2)O with tripodal alcohols results in the formation of new octa- and dodecametallic [(Mn4Mn4II)-Mn-III] and [(Mn6Mn6II)-Mn-III] clusters. Their structures describe 'one-dimensional' rod-like arrays of six and ten edge-sharing triangles, respectively. Both complexes display S approximate to 0 spin ground states. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
