Double- and quadruple-decker complexes of rare-earth metals with mixed phthalocyanine and Schiff base ligands have been synthesized and structurally and magnetically characterized. These complexes (see picture: Dy pink, Ca green, N blue, C black) extend the scope of sandwich-type tetrapyrrole-based rare-earth molecular materials.
