Abstract

In the title iron phosphonate compounds, triangles and hexagons fuse together to generate a maple leaf lattice (see polyhedral representation; green Fe, purple P). This lattice is a new type of topologically frustrated antiferromagnetic network. Exotic forms of magnetic behavior are often encountered in such frustrated materials.
