Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
On the basis of high-spin metal–cyanide clusters of MnIII6MIII (M = Cr, Fe, Co), three one-dimensional (1D) chain complexes, [Mn(salen)]6[Cr(CN)6]2·6CH3OH·H2O (1), [Mn(5-CH3)salen)]6[Fe(CN)6]2·2CH3CN·10H2O (2), and [Mn(5-CH3)salen)]6[Co(CN)6]2·2CH3CN·10H2O (3) [salen = N,N′-ethylenebis(salicylideneiminato) dianion], have been synthesized and characterized structurally as well as magnetically. Complexes 2 and 3 are isomorphic but slightly different from complex 1. All three complexes contain a 1D chain structure which is comprised of alternating high-spin metal–cyanide clusters of [Mn6M]3+ and a bridging group [M(CN)6]3– in the trans mode. Furthermore, the three complexes all exhibit extended 3D supramolecular networks originating from short intermolecular contacts. Magnetic investigation indicates that the coupling mechanisms are intrachain antiferromagnetic interactions for 1 and ferromagnetic interactions for 2, respectively. Complex 3 is a magnetic dilute system due to the diamagnetic nature of CoIII. Further magnetic investigations show that complexes 1 and 2 are dominated by the 3D antiferromagnetic ordering with TN = 7.2 K for 1 and 9.5 K for 2. It is worth noting that the weak frequency-dependent phenomenon of AC susceptibilities was observed in the low-temperature region in both 1 and 2, suggesting the presence of slow magnetic relaxations.
