original image

A record-breaking high-spin state is observed in a molecule based on the [Mo(CN)7]4− building block. As K. R. Dunbar and co-workers describe in their Communication on page 5081 ff., the anionic nanosized docosanuclear {Mo8Mn14} cluster is the first discrete compound based on [Mo(CN)7]4−. The compound contains the most paramagnetic centers (22) and the largest ground-state spin value (S=31) for a cyanide-bridged cluster.
