    Abstract

    The crystal structure and magnetic properties of the compound Na5[Mn(l-tart)2]·12H2O (1, l-tart = l-tartrate) have been investigated over the pressure range 0.34–3.49 GPa. The bulk modulus of 1 has been determined as 23.9(6) GPa, with a compression of the coordination spheres around the Na+ ions observed. 1 is therefore relatively incompressible, helping it to retain its magnetic anisotropy under pressure.
