The reaction of [W(CN)6(bpy)]- with the corresponding Mn Schiff bases led to the formation of two antiferromagnetic (1) and ferromagnetic (2) chains. The formation of the conglomerate (2) is associated with chiral Induction by the enantiomeric chelate-ring conformation of the Mn Schiff base. Modulation of the linking groups in the Mn Schiff bases affects the interchain contacts, causing alteration of the magnetic behaviors from metamagnetlsm (1) to slow magnetic relaxation (2).
