Ab initio calculations on the octahedral dysprosium aluminate complex [Dy(AlMe4)3] (1) predict weak SMM properties. Dynamic magnetic susceptibility measurements on 1 confirm the theoretical predictions, revealing fast relaxation of the magnetization via quantum tunnelling. © 2014 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
