    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    A two-step method for the directed synthesis of high-nuclearity Mn III-MnII-CuII heterometallic transition metal complexes is described. The synthesis starts from a preformed copper(II) complex to trap an inner hexacapped cuboctahedral manganese oxide core. Copyright © 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
