Cyano-mediated interaction of the alternating high-spin MnIIcenters and low-spin RuIIIcenters in {Mn[Ru(acac)2(CN)2]2}n (Hacac = acetylacetone) results in long-range ferromagnetic ordering below 3.6 K. This novel MnIIRuIIIcoordination polymer, which has a diamond-like structure (see picture), was constructed from [Ru(acac)2(CN)2]- and Mn2+ions.
