The spin alignment rule for the magnetic couplings of d-π-d conjugated systems via pyrimidine has been proposed on the basis of the superexchange (SE) interaction and spin polarization (SP) effects in order to predict the sign of Jab values between transition metal ions. This rule shows that the subtle balance of σ- and π- type SE interaction and SP effects determines the magnetic interaction of these systems.
