A heterostructure of diamagnetic magnesium-aluminium layered double hydroxides (Mg-Al LDHs) and photomagnetic cobalt-iron Prussian Blue analogue (Co-Fe PBA) was designed, synthesized and then designated as LDH-PB. The cyanide-bridged Co-Fe PBA was two-dimensionally intercalated into the Mg-Al LDH template by the stepwise anion exchange method. LDH-PB showed ferrimagnetic properties with in-plane antiferromagnetic exchange interactions, as well as small photo-induced magnetization by visible light illumination due to the low dimensional structures and the characteristic photo-induced electronic states of the mixed valence of FeIII(low spin, S = 1/2)-CN-CoII(high spin, S = 3/2)-NC-FeII (low spin, S = 0).
