The phenomenon of single molecule magnet (SMM) behavior of mixed valent Mn12 coordination clusters of general formula [MnIII8MnIV4O12(RCOO)16(H2O)4] had been exemplified by bulk samples of the archetypal [MnIII8MnIV4O12(CH3COO)16(H2O)4] (4) molecule, and the molecular origin of the observed magnetic behavior has found support from extensive studies on the Mn12 system within crystalline material or on molecules attached to a variety of surfaces. Here we report the magnetic signature of the isolated cationic species [Mn12O12(CH3COO)15(CH3CN)]+ (1) by gas phase X-ray Magnetic Circular Dichroism (XMCD) spectroscopy, and we find it closely resembling that of the corresponding bulk samples. Furthermore, we report broken symmetry DFT calculations of spin densities and single ion tensors of the isolated, optimized complexes [Mn12O12(CH3COO)15(CH3CN)]+ (1), [Mn12O12(CH3COO)16] (2), [Mn12O12(CH3COO)16(H2O)4] (3), and the complex in bulk geometry [MnIII8MnIV4O12(CH3COO)16(H2O)4] (5). The found magnetic fingerprints – experiment and theory alike – are of a remarkable robustness: The MnIV4 core bears almost no magnetic anisotropy while the surrounding MnIII8 ring is highly anisotropic. These signatures are truly intrinsic properties of the Mn12 core scaffold within all of these complexes and largely void of the environment. This likely holds irrespective of bulk packing effects.
