An extended polypyrazolyl ligand has been used to assemble Mn ions into high spin entities, in the form of one stable molecule composed of two well defined clusters. The slow relaxation of the magnetisation observed is demonstrated to arise from each “half-SMM” composing this molecular cluster pair.
