Magnetic properties of a cupric triangular cluster compound (Formula presented) were investigated. Susceptibility data show that paramagnetic cupric spin (Formula presented) above room temperature forms (Formula presented) trimers at lower temperatures because of strong intratrimer antiferromagnetic interactions. The cluster moments acquire antiferromagnetic order below 2.6 K. The trimers can be polarized in an external field of 20 T at 1.3 K. The magnetization remains nearly constant at 1(Formula presented) per trimer up to a magnetization plateau at 55 T.
