The synthesis, structure and magnetic properties of two isostructural heptametallic lanthanide discs are reported, showing single molecule magnet (SMM) behaviour with a large energy barrier for the dysprosium analogue and a large magnetocaloric effect (MCE) for the gadolinium analogue. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
