The plasticity of the coordination chemistry of Lanthanoid ions (LnIII) has allow the design of novel coordination compounds based on organic ligands and also on inorganic ligands. The combination of both types of ligands can produce hybrid inorganic-organic LnIII complexes with interesting magnetic and optical properties.

Figure 1: The structural analysis reflects that the nature of the heteroatom of the inorganic ligand can induce changes in the geometry of the LnIII ion, and therefore, affects the magnetic properties of the system.
