Large single crystals of the chiral ferrimagnet [{Cr(CN) 6}{Mn(S)-pnH-(H2O)}](H2O) can be recovered from the reaction between K3[Cr(CN)6], Mn(ClO 4)2, and (S)-1,2-diaminopropane dihydrochloride (see picture). Magnetic measurements of the complex show that MnII and CrIII ions interact ferrimagnetically, with a magnetic transition occurring at 38 K.
