Single-molecule magnets: A square-pyramidal pentametallic dysprosium cluster was synthesized and showed slow magnetic relaxation at temperatures as high as 40 K. The thermal energy barrier to relaxation of magnetization of this single-molecule magnet was found at a temperature of 530 K and is the largest yet observed for any d- or f-block cluster compound.
