Herein we describe the synthesis, structural and magnetic characterisation of three transition metal cluster complexes that feature the polytopic ligand N-(2-pyridyl)-3-carboxypropanamide (H2L): [Fe3IIIFe2II(HL)6(O)(H2O)3][ClO4]5??3MeCN??4H2O, 1, [Co8(HL)8(O)(OH)4(MeOH)3(H2O)]-[ClO4]3??5MeOH??2H2O, 2, and [Cu6(L
