Denis G. Samsonenko, Carley Paulsen, Elsa Lhotel, Vladimir S. Mironov, and Kira E. Vostrikova «[MnIII(Schiff Base)]3[ReIV(CN)7], Highly Anisotropic 3D Coordination Framework: Synthesis, Crystal Structure, Magnetic Investigations, and Theoretical Analysis» Inorg. Chem., 2014, 53, №19, P. 10217–10231. DOI: 10.1021/ic501247x

A new 3D coordination polymer [MnIII(acacen)]3[ReIV(CN)7] was synthesized and characterized. This is the first 3D framework among the compounds composed of homoleptic cyanometallate and [MnIII(Schiff base)] complex. Its unusual magnetic behavior results from a interplay of Re−Mn anisotropic spin coupling and ZFS effect of MnIII ions with a noncollinear orientation of the local magnetic axes in the crystal. A theoretical model of anisotropic spin coupling between orbitally degenerate [ReIV(CN)7]3− anions and MnIII ions is developed.
