Two Ln(III) (Ln = Ce or Nd) complexes based on [15-MC-6] (MC = metallacrown) and phosphine oxide are first reported with Ln(III) ion featuring a hexagonal bipyramidal LnO8 geometry, namely D6h symmetry. Magnetic susceptibilities analyses reveal both behave as single-ion magnets (SIMs), providing a new model for insight into magneto-structural correlations.
