A new cyanide-containing building block K[Fe(pcq)(CN)3] [1; pcq- = 8-(pyridine-2-carboxamido)quinoline anion] containing a low-spin FeIII center with three cyanide groups in a meridional arrangement has been successfully designed and synthesized. Three cyanide-bridged trinuclear FeIII2MnII complexes, [Fe(pcq)-(CN)3]2[Mn(CH3OH) 2(H2O)2]·2H2O (2), [Fe(pcq)(CN)3]2[Mn(bipy)2]· CH 3OH·2H2O (3), and [Fe(pcq)(CN)3] 2[Mn(phen)2]·CH3OH·2H 2O (4), have been synthesized and structurally characterized. The magnetic susceptibilities of the three heterometallic complexes have been investigated.
