Three heterometallic cluster complexes {Ln12Mo4} featuring an Ln12 core of a distorted truncated tetrahedron were synthesized with the assistance of four MoO42− anions as ancillary ligands. Magnetic studies of the {Gd12Mo4} cluster revealed a large magnetocaloric effect due to the presence of the large number of weakly coupled Gd(iii) ions.
