Coexistence of Magnetization Relaxation and Dielectric Relaxation in a Single-Chain Magnet

A novel single-chain magnet, [MnIII3O(Meppz)3(EtOH)4(OAc)] (1), has been successfully synthesized from a secondary building block [MnIII3O(Meppz)3(EtOH)5Cl] (2) with an S = 1 ground state. SCM 1 exhibits both magnetization relaxation and dielectric relaxation properties.
