Crystal structure and magnetic properties of Gd2([18]crown-6)2-(OH)2 (CH3CN)2[Ni(dmit)2]2 (dmit2- = 2-thioxo-1,3-dithiole-4,5-dithiolate) are reported. Gd3+ ions (S = 7/2) were introduced into the π-spin network of [Ni(dmit)2]- (S = 1/2) complex as a binuclear supramolecular cation, Gd2([18]crown)crown-6)2(OH)2 (CH3CN)2, in which two Gd([18]crown-6) units are bridged with two hydroxide ions. The weak antiferromagnetic interactions between Gd···Gd through hydroxide ions were observed, and [Ni(dmit)2]- formed isolated monomers and dimers in the crystal.
