A one-dimensional homochiral MoIVCuII compound, [Cu(tren)][Cu(33)][Mo(CN)8]·4H2O (1, tren = tris(2-aminoethyl)amine, 33 = bis(3-aminopropyl)amine), was synthesized and characterized. Compound 1 experiences spontaneous resolution from achiral components and crystallized in a chiral space group P21. It exhibits photomagnetism via photoinduced metal-to-metal charge transfer, making it a novel example of multifunctional molecule-based materials.
