Abstract

A nanosized heterometallic cluster containing 60 La(iii) and 76 Ni(ii) ions, which are arranged into a four-shell, nest-like framework structure, was obtained by the hydrolytic reaction of the mixed La(NO3) 3-Ni(NO3)2 system using iminodiacetate as an ancillary ligand to control the hydrolysis.
