Abstract: A new family of pentanuclear 3d-4f heterometal complexes of general composition [LnIII2(MIIL)3(μ3-O)3H](ClO4)·xH2O (1-5) [Ln = Nd, M = Zn, 1; Nd, Ni, 2; Nd, Cu, 3; Gd, Cu, 4; Tb, Cu, 5] have been synthesized in moderate yields (50-60%) following a self-assembly reaction involving the hexadentate phenol-based ligand, viz., N,N-bis(2-hydroxy-3-methoxy-5-methylbenzyl)-N′,N′-diethylethylenediamine (H2L). Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses have been used to characterize these complexes. The compounds are all isostructural, having a 3-fold axis of symmetry that passes through the 4f metal centers. The [MIIL] units in these complexes are acting as bis-bidentate metalloligands and, together with μ3-oxido bridging ligands, complete the slightly distorted monocapped square antiprismatic nine-coordination environment around the 4f metal centers. The cationic complexes also contain a H+ ion that occupies the central position at the 3-fold axis. Magnetic properties of the copper(II) complexes (3-5) show a changeover from antiferromagnetic in 3 to ferromagnetic 3d-4f interactions in 4 and 5. For the isotropic CuII-GdIII compound 4, the simulation of magnetic data provides very weak Cu-Gd (J1 = 0.57 cm-1) and Gd-Gd exchange constants (J2 = 0.14 cm-1). Compound 4 is the only member of this triad, showing a tail of an out-of-phase signal in the ac susceptibility measurement. A large-spin ground state (S = 17/2) and a negative value of D (-0.12 cm-1) result in a very small barrier (8 cm-1) for this compound. Among the three NdIII2MII3 (M = ZnII, NiII, and CuII) complexes, only the ZnII analogue (1) displays an NIR luminescence due to the 4F3/2 → 4I11/2 transition in NdIII when excited at 290 nm. The rest of the compounds do not show such NdIII/TbIII-based emission. The paramagnetic CuII and NiII ions quench the fluorescence in 2-5 and thereby lower the population of the triplet state
