A unique 3d-4f mixed metal trinuclear compound, [Cu2Gd(L)2(NO3)2]NO3 (1; H2L = 2,6-di(acetoacetyl)pyridine), is derived from a 'one-pot' reaction with H2L, Cu(NO3)2 · 3H2O and Gd(NO3)3 · 5H2O. Two L2- providing one central 2,6-diacylpyridine site and two terminal 1,3-diketonate sites hold two CuII ions and GdIII ion and form a linear Cu-Gd-Cu trinuclear core. This compound shows ferromagnetic interaction between CuII and GdIII.
