Summary

This chapter focuses on flexible and soft spin-crossover (SCO) iron(II), iron(III) and cobalt(II) compounds bearing long alkyl chains. It attempts to illustrate four topics: (i) unique magnetic properties; (ii) liquid crystals; (iii) Langmuir–Blodgett (LB) films and amphiphilic SCO compounds; and (iv) self-assembled molecules from SCO compounds with long alkyl chains. The discussion includes reverse spin-transition and re-entrant spin-transition of cobalt(II) compounds, metallomesogens with SCO property, and synchronization of SCO and liquid crystal transition.
