The design and preparation of stable cyanide-bearing six-coordinate complexes of formula [MIII(L)(CN)x](x+l-m)- (M = trivalent transition metal ion and L = polydentate blocking ligand) are among the main subjects of our current research activity. This is just the first step in our rational approach to the preparation of nuclearity controlled polynuclear compounds with novel magnetic properties. Their use as ligands towards either fully hydrated metal ions or coordinatively unsaturated preformed species affords a wide variety of low-dimensional metal assemblies whose nuclearity, dimensionality and magnetic properties can be tuned. Among the different new spin topologies obtained through this rational synthetic strategy, ferromagnetically coupled 4,2-ribbon like bimetallic chains which exhibit slow magnetic relaxation and hysteresis effects (single and double chains as magnets) are one of the most appealing ones. Some selected example of these new magnetic materials will be highlighted.
