We report a dichlorido-bridged dinuclear dysprosium(III) single-molecule magnet [Dy(Cy2N)2(µ-Cl)(THF)]2 which shows an effective energy barrier for magnetization reversal (Ueff) of ca. 623 K. This is by far the largest Ueff barrier for any chlorido-bridged lanthanide single-molecule magnet. We observe two relaxation processes with near-identical temperature dependencies, one of which disappears upon magnetic dilution. We suspect that these two processes are the isolated and coupled relaxation process.
