We report the combined measurements of the dc susceptibility 0, the ac susceptibility , and the NMR relaxation rate T for the molecular-based heterometallic single-chain magnet [Mn(saltmen)]2[Ni(pao)2(py)2](PF6)2. At low temperatures, this system is well described by a one-dimensional array of effective spin S=3 chains comprising the MnIII-NiII-MnIII trimers and treated as the S=3 Ising chain with the single-ion term (Blume-Capel model). Using the exact solution of the model and based on the picture that the random motion of the local domain walls dominates the low-temperature spin dynamics, we succeeded in reproducing the experimental results of the dc susceptibility 0, the ac susceptibility , and the 19F-NMR relaxation rate T in a consistent manner.
