    Three 3d-4f phosphonate complexes, [CoII 8GdIII 8(μ3-OH)4(NO3)4(O3PtBu)8(O2CtBu)16], [CoII 8GdIII 4(O3PtBu)6(O2CtBu)16] and [CoII 4GdIII 6(O3PCH2Ph)6(O2CtBu)14(MeCN)2], have been synthesized and have structures that can be related to molecular grids. Magnetic studies show they have promise as low temperature magnetic refrigerants. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2011.
