A novel dicyanoosmium(III) complex, trans-Ph4P[OsIII(salen)(CN)2]* CH2Cl2* H2O (1; Ph4P+= tetraphenylphosphonium cation, salen2-=N, N′-ethylenebis(salicylideneaminato) dianion), has been synthesized and structurally characterized. Reactions of 1 with [Cu(Me3tacn)(H2O)2](ClO4)2(Me3tacn=1, 4, 7-trimethyl-1, 4, 7-triazacyclononane) under different conditions produce the 1-D ferromagnetic zigzag chains [Os(salen)(CN)2]2[Cu(Me3tacn)] * CH3OH (2) and [Os(salen)(CN)2][Cu(Me3tacn)] * ClO4(3).
