A new cobalt(ii) complex bearing a pair of cobalt(iii) tris-chelate complexes as metalloligands was prepared. The CoII ion possesses an ideal trigonal antiprismatic geometry because of the intermolecular hydrogen-bonds between the metalloligands via counter anions. This complex exhibits slow magnetic relaxation under a dc field reminiscent of a single-molecule magnet behavior.
