We succeeded in synthesizing a new high-spin complex [Fe2(CN)12Ni3(L)6]·27H2O, where L is stable nitroxide 2-(imidazol-4-yl)-4,4,5,5-tetramethyl-2-imidazoline-3-oxide-1-oxyl. According to X-ray diffraction data, the metal core of the pentanuclear [Fe2(CN)12Ni3(L)6] molecule is a trigonal bipyramid with Fe atoms occupying the axial positions and linked via CN bridges to {NiL2} fragments laying in the equatorial plane. A peculiarity of this coordination compound is a large number of water molecules per the [Fe2(CN)12Ni3(L)6] pentanuclear molecule in the structure. The complex character of the μeff(T) dependence points to many competing channels of exchange interactions between the three types of paramagnetic centers.
