Canted antiferromagnetism (AFM) is considered an effective tool for designing single-chain magnets (SCMs) in homometallic chain systems. The family of manganese(iii) (MnIII) salen-type Schiff-base complexes is an outstanding building-unit candidate for designing SCMs because such complexes possess relatively large uniaxial magnetic anisotropy in the out-of-plane direction. However, SCM behaviour in simple alternating chains based on monomeric MnIII salen-type complexes has not been studied extensively. Herein, we report the SCM behaviour of canted AFM in an alternating chain of an acetate-bridged MnIII salen-type complex.
