The inverse magnetocaloric effect (IMCE) in molecular solids is explored for two antiferromagnetically coupled MnII dinuclear complexes. Magnetic studies reveal that both of them demonstrate the IMCE with negative magnetic entropy changes (−ΔSM = −3.5 J kg–1 K–1), which are in line with an analytic function derived from the quantized phenomenological model proposed in this work.
