A cyanide-linked RuIII(4d)-MnIII(3d) bimetallic chain complex (1) was prepared by the self-assembly of a ruthenium(III) bicyanide and a MnIII Schiff base. Ferromagnetic couplings between the magnetic centers are present within a chain, while antiferromagnetic interactions between chains (TN = 2.5 K) transmit. Complex 1 also shows a field-induced magnetic phase transition.
