Inelastic neutron scattering measurements on the complexes [Cu4OCl6L4] (L = pyridine or dimethyl sulfoxide) revealed ground-state zero-field splittings of ca. 3 and 6 cm-1. The splittings are interpreted as due to the combined effects of exchange and spin–orbit coupling, and suggest a new interpretation of previous magnetic data.
