Single crystalline polar magnets (Mn1−xCox)2Mo3O8 (0 ≤ x ≤ 1) have been synthesized, and their magnetic properties have been studied. Magnetic interactions of the samples can be modulated drastically by Co-doping, and a ferrimagnetic to antiferromagnetic phase transition is identified at x = 0.35. For the samples hosting a ferrimagnetic state (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.3), square-like magnetic hysteresis loops are commonly identified, and the remnant magnetization and coercive field are revealed to strongly depend on the Co-content and temperature. The occupation ratio and magnetic nature of Co2+ are key ingredients to dictate the competition of various magnetic exchange couplings in the samples.
