Magnetization measurements performed on Prussian blue analogs TM 32+ [CrIIICN)6]2 · nH2O (TM = Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu) confirmed the dual character of the exchange interaction (antiferromagnetic AFM and ferromagnetic FM) in this system. AFM interaction dominates for the Cr2+ sample and with rising atomic number Z the FM interaction becomes more important reaching pure FM character for the Cu2+ sample.
