The employment of pyridine-2,6-dimethanol in 3d/4f metal cluster chemistry has afforded a new {CuII15GdIII7} cagelike molecule with a beautiful structure built by fused triangular subunits; the compound exhibits an overall ferrimagnetic behavior with an appreciable ground-state spin value and shows promise as a low-temperature magnetic refrigerant.
