Abstract

Single-molecule magnets: A cyanide-bridged hexanuclear complex showed a thermal electron-transfer-coupled spin transition centered at 220a K. Light irradiation at low temperature (LT; HT=high temperature) generated a metastable state showing slow magnetic relaxation in measurements of the alternating-current magnetic susceptibility (Ï m; see picture).
