A symmetry breaking occurs at about 120 K in the low-spin (LS) phase of [FeH2L2–Me](ClO4)2. The thermally activated (ta) LS phase is of low symmetry (ls), while the photoinduced (PI) state is of high symmetry (hs). Relaxation from PIHS to LSls occurs via an intermediate LShs phase. LSls and LShs are metastable phases, and their competition depends on temperature and on the history of the material.
