    Two new Co(ii)-Cr(iii) phosphonate clusters with [CoII 4CrIII4] and [CoII 8CrIII4] cores have been synthesized by a displacement reaction from a pre-formed heterometallic carboxylate cage. Magnetic studies show overall antiferromagnetic interactions are present in these clusters. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
