Electron-transfer makes a magnet: 2:1 assembly of [Ru2 II,IIL4] paddlewheel complexes and BDTA-TCNQ yielded a new structural type of electron-transfer system with a three-dimensional network structure which exhibits a long-range ferromagnetic transition at Tc = 107 K (see depicted χ vs T curve and inset view of structure along the a axis). L = m-fluorobenzoate, BTDA-TCNQ = bis(1,2,5-thiadiazolo) tetracyanoquinodimethane.
