2012_16/2012A Cyano-Bridged Vanadium–Niobium Bimetal Assembly Exhibiting a High Curie Temperature of 210 K (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 16/2012)

The front cover picture shows a schematic representation of the coordination network and the temperature dependence of magnetization of a cyano-bridged V–Nb bimetal assembly, K0.59VII1.59VIII0.41[NbIV(CN)8]·(SO4)0.50·6.9H2O. This compound exhibits ferrimagnetism with a high Curie temperature (TC) of 210 K. This temperature is the highest TC value among those of octacyano-bridged bimetal assemblies. The Short Communication by S. Ohkoshi et al. on p. 2649 ff. demonstrates that the increase in the superexchange pathways of VII–NC–NbIV contributes to the achievement of the high TC value.
