The mononuclear high-spin iron(II) complex 1, coordinated by a pentaisopropylcyclopentadienide and an aryl group (see graphic), has been prepared and characterized by X-ray diffraction analysis. AC magnetic studies have revealed that this species exhibits slow magnetic relaxation and has the characteristics of a single-molecule magnet.
