Magnetic cation of Co2+ was incorporated in a monovalent [Ni(dmit)2] (2-thioxo-l ,3-dithiole-4,5-dithiolate) salt by using the supramolecular framework of 15-crown-5. The π-spins of [Ni(dmit)2]~ formed a one-dimensional Heisenberg antiferromagnetic linear chain, while the d-spin of Co2+ behaved as a free S = 3/2 spin within the crystal.
