A visible light-induced magnetization change of the 3d-4f heterometallic, [Nd(DMF)4(H2O)3(μ-NC)Co(CN) 5]·H2O (DMF=N,N-dimethylformamide), is observed and described. The plots of χMT versus T of the complex showed that the χMT values, after visible light illumination, were enhanced by about 25% as compared to before irradiation in the temperature range of 5-40K.
