A new cyanide-bearing molecular precursor, mer-[Fe(pzcq)(CN) 3]- (1), and a zigzag chain, [Fe(pzcq)(CN) 3][Mn(salen)]·4H2O (2), were prepared and characterized in terms of structure and magnetism. Magnetic data reveal that intrachain antiferromagnetic couplings via cyanide ligands in 2 are clearly operating, resulting in a ferrimagnetic nature.
