Heterometallic wheel: A cyanide-bridged heterometallic dodecanuclear complex featuring a nanosized molecular wheel has been synthesized based on magnetically anisotropic [Mn(salen)]+ and [Fe-(bpmb) (CN) 2]- building blocks. Magnetic studies reveal that the complex exhibits overall ferromagnetic intramolecular coupling (see picture) and frequency-dependent ac magnetic susceptibility. H2bpmb = 1,2-bis(pyridine-2- carboxamido)-4-methyl benzene. (Graph Presented).
