Abstract

original image

Cyclic tetrameric units (··Mn-NC-Fe-CN··)4 (depicted on the right) construct the two-dimensional network of the title compound. The layers thus formed are linked together by van der Waals contacts. The compound displays metamagnetism: ferromagnetic coupling is observed within layers and antiferromagnetic coupling between layers.
