The first example of unique coordination induced intramolecular pancake bonding was achieved through the reduction of two bis(pyrazolyl)-tetrazine ligands, affording [MIII 2 (μ-(bpytz)2)(THMD)4](M = Dy, Y; bpytz = 3,6-bis(3,5-dimethyl-pyrazolyl)-1,2,4,5-tetrazine; TMHD = 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-3,5-heptanedionate). To provide a cohesive magneto-structural correlation, the mono bis(pyrazolyl)-tetrazine bridged congener [DyIII 2 (μ-bpytz)(THMD)6]·4(C6H6) was also isolated. Both metal complexes exhibit single-molecule magnet behaviour under an applied dc field.
