The tetradecanuclear FeIII pivalate nanocluster [Fe14O10(OH)₄(Piv)18], comprising a new type of metal oxide framework, has been solvothermally synthesized from a hexanuclear iron pivalate precursor in dichlormethane/acetonitrile solution. Magnetic measurements indicate the presence of very strong antiferromagnetic interactions in the cluster core.
