A novel star-shaped high-spin Fe(III) tetranuclear cluster was unexpectedly obtained by the reaction of an [FeIII(phsal)2]- anion with an Fe(II) coordination cation (H2phsal: N-(2- hydroxyphenyl)salicylaldimine). Despite a star-shaped Fe(III) tetranuclear structure similar to reported Fe(III) single molecule magnets, the present compound exhibited a bulk antiferromagnetic transition at 0.6K due to a magnetic exchange coupling through intercluster π-stacking interactions.
