Two cyano- and phenoxo-bridged octanuclear complexes ZnII4DyIII2CoIII2 (complex 1) and ZnII4DyIII2CrIII2 (complex 2) with diamagnetic Zn(ii) and Co(iii) are reported. Dy(iii) is surrounded by nine oxygen atoms of two [Zn(Me2valpn)] (Me2valpn2- = dianion of N,N′-2,2-dimethylpropylenebis(3-methoxysalicylideneimine)) and one water molecule. Magnetic studies reveal that both exhibit single-ion magnet (SIM) behavior with the energy barrier of 85.9 K for complex 1 and 100.9 K for complex 2.
