Abstract: A reversible single-crystal-to-single-crystal transformation is used to dramatically change the relaxation
behavior of a single-ion magnet. The coordination geometry of the DyIII site of a [Zn–Dy–Zn] complex
changes from pentagonal–bipyramid (quasi-D5h) to octahedron (quasi-Oh), inducing an energy barrier
change from 305 cm1 (439 K) to a negligible value, respectively. Ab initio calculations reveal that the
ideal D5h–DyIII is of perfect axiality with a substantial energy barrier in accordance with the experimental
