A hexanuclear MnII-MnIII-cluster, [Mn 6(O)2(O2CC6HF4) 10(HO2CCH3)4]·(C 7H8) (1), was synthesized by a typical acetate-substitution reaction of the well-known Mn12-cluster, [Mn12(O)12(O2CCH3) 16(H2O)4]·2CH3CO 2H·4H2O in the presence of an excess of 2, 3, 5, 6-tetrafluorobenzoic acid. Each unpaired spin on Mn(II) and Mn(III) ions is promoted as to be antiferromagnetically cancelled to produce an S = 0 ground state.
