We report a supramolecule that contains five spins of two different types, and with, crucially, two different and predictable interaction energies between the spins. The supramolecule is characterised and the interaction energies demonstrated by EPR spectroscopy. Based on the measured parameters we propose experiments that would allow this designed supramolecule to be used to simulate quantum decoherence in maximally entangled Bell states that could be used in quantum teleportation.
