A series of Ln4 clusters, [Ln4L2(μ3-OH)2(μ4-NO3)(NO3)4(OCH3)(H2O)]·xMeCN·yMeOH (Ln = Gd (1), Tb (2), Dy (3), Ho (4), Er (5), Yb (6), L = 2-{[2-(2-hydroxy-ethoxy)-ethylimino]-methyl}-6-methoxyphenol), have been synthesized by the reaction of Ln(NO)3 and a Schiff-base ligand formed in situ. The six complexes display similar structures, with an overall metal core comprising two edge-sharing triangular Ln3 units linked by a μ4-NO3(-) bridge. The luminescence spectrum of complex 2 shows the characteristic emission of the Tb(III) ions. The magnetic susceptibility studies reveal that the Ln(III) ions are very weakly interacting in all six compounds. Frequency dependence of the ac-susceptibility was found for 3, suggesting a typical single-molecule magnet (SMM) behavior with an anisotropic barrier of 28 K.
