H(x)K(1-x)M(II)[Ru(2)(CO(3))(4)](H(2)O)(y)(MeOH)(z) (M = Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Mg) were synthesized from the reaction of M(II) and K(3)[Ru(2)(CO(3))(4)] in water and are isomorphous with an orthorhombic three-dimensional network structures based on mu(3)-CO(3)(2-) linkages to Ru(2) moieties forming layers and also to trans-M(II)(OH(2))(4) sites forming linked chains that connect the layers. They, as well as non-isomorphous M = Cu, magnetically order as canted ferrimagnets with T(c) = 4.4 +/- 1.0 K… CONTINUE READING
