The discovery of the cuprate-based high-temperature superconductors, well isolated two-dimensional coordination polymers, sparked a renewed interest in the mechanism of magnetic exchange and the design and preparation of lowdimensional magnetic materials. We have developed a program to investigate magnetostructural correlations in Cu(II)-based materials through the preparation and analysis of systems ranging from simple dimers to magnetic ladders and twodimensional layers. Both solution methods and mechanochemical techniques have been applied and the syntheses, structures and magnetic properties of these materials will be described.
