In the present work, synthesis, characterization, and properties of a new 1D-polymeric chain of [Ce(piv)3(MeOH)2]n (1D-Ce) are described. This polymeric structure was synthesized via reaction of Ce(NO3)3·6H2O with pivalic acid in presence of triethylamine. Crystal structure consists of cerium coordinated to eight oxygen atoms from five pivalate and two methanol moieties. Magnetic studies on the complex revealed a strong antiferromagnetic interaction between CeIII ions in the 1D chain.
