An octanuclear manganese complex, [MnIII 8(μ4-O)4(L)4(OMe)4(OAc)4(OCH2CH2NH3)4] [1; H2L = 3-(dimethoxymethyl)-2-hydroxybenzoic acid], was synthesized with an extended cubane core structure consisting of eight Mn ions bridged by O atoms. Cryomagnetic studies revealed that 1 showed a single-molecule-magnet behavior with an S = 16 spin ground state.
