Title: Long-range magnetic order and interchain interactions in the S = 2 chain system MnCl 3 (bpy)

Here, a compound with very weakly interacting chains, MnCl 3(bpy), has attracted a great deal of attention as a possible S = 2 Haldane chain. However, long-range magnetic order of the chains prevents the Haldane gap from developing below 11.5 K. Based on a four-sublattice model, a description of the antiferromagnetic resonance (AFMR) spectrum up to frequencies of 1.5 THz and magnetic fields up to 50 T indicates that the interchain coupling is indeed quite small but that the Dzaloshinskii-Moriya interaction produced by broken inversion symmetry is substantial (0.12 meV). In addition, the antiferromagnetic, nearest-neighbor interaction within each chain (3.3 meV) is significantly stronger than previously reported. The excitation spectrum of this S = 2 compound is well described by a 1/S expansion about the classical limit.
