For V[TCNE](x) y(solvent) (TCNE = tetracyanoethylene), the first room-temperature molecular magnet, the mechanism for the strong exchange coupling in the family M[TCNE](x) y(solvent) has remained an open question. hi an attempt to understand the magnetic ordering in these systems we performed density functional theory calculations on a six coordinated vanadium complex with four TCNE molecules. For this model system we find that the ferrimagnetic spin configuration is energetically more favorable and that the highest single-occupied orbital has pi* character.
