The experimental and theoretical determination of magnetic anisotropy in molecular spin clusters is addressed. The method used provides hints for the interpretation of X-ray magnetic dichroism (XMCD) spectra and the results are evidence for the interplay between the single ion magnetic anisotropy and that of the whole molecule.
