The synthesis, structures and magnetism of a new nano-scale constructs using carboxylic acid functionalised {Cr7Ni} rings are reported. Well-established carboxylate chemistry is used to synthesise of spectacular assemblies including a {Zn4O} tetrahedron surrounded by an octahedron of {Cr7Ni} rings. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
