Magnets derived from inorganic materials (e.g., oxides, rare-earth–based, and intermetallic compounds)
are key components of modern technological applications. Despite considerable success in a broad
range of applications, these inorganic magnets suffer several drawbacks, including energetically
expensive fabrication, limited availability of certain constituent elements, high density, and poor
scope for chemical tunability. A promising design strategy for next-generation magnets relies on the
versatile coordination chemistry of abundant metal ions and inexpensive organic ligands. Following this
approach, we report the general, simple, and efficient synthesis of lightweight, molecule-based magnets
by postsynthetic reduction of preassembled coordination networks that incorporate chromium metal
ions and pyrazine building blocks. The resulting metal-organic ferrimagnets feature critical temperatures
up to 242°C and a 7500-oersted room-temperature coercivity
