Abstract

The crystal structure and magnetic properties of the compound Na-5[Mn(L-tart)2]center dot 12H(2)O ( 1, L-tart = L-tartrate) have been investigated over the pressure range 0.34-3.49 GPa. The bulk modulus of 1 has been determined as 23.9(6) GPa, with a compression of the coordination spheres around the Na+ ions observed. 1 is therefore relatively incompressible, helping it to retain its magnetic anisotropy under pressure.
