A new family of isomorphous [Cu4Ln] clusters (LnIII = Gd, Tb, Dy) with a ‘propeller’-like topology was obtained from the use of naphthalene-2,3-diol in CuII/LnIII chemistry; all complexes are ferromagnetically-coupled and display either magnetocaloric properties or SMM behavior depending on the central Ln ion.
