Abstract

original image

Rational design versus serendipity: The first two high-nuclearity MnII/III clusters with a novel extended bis(phenylpyrazolyl)pyridyl ligand (see graphic) are described in a promising route for the preparation of new magnetic coordination aggregates, differing from conventional methods involving small bridging ligands.
