Manganese oxide nanoclusters with α-Keggin-type cores and redox-tunable magnetic behavior were synthesized by H. Oshio et al. In their Communication on page 5716 ff., they report that the clusters could be oxidized in one-electron steps, leading to increases in the single-molecule-magnetic properties. The image shows the transition from a {Mn13}4+ species through {Mn13}5+ to {Mn13}6+ and the changes in the resultant hysteretic responses.
