Redox isomerism is observed for a lanthanide complex for the first time. Upon lowering the temperature, an electron of [{(dpp-bian)Yb(μ-Cl)(dme)}2] (1) is transferred from the metal to the ligand (see picture), giving rise to marked shortening of Yb[BOND]N bonds and a hysteretic jump in the magnetic moment. The crystal packing is of a crucial importance, as two other crystal modifications of 1 do not undergo this effect.
