2007_08/2007Spin-Crossover Studies on a Series of 1D Chain and Dinuclear Iron(II) Triazine-Dipyridylamine Compounds (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 8/2007)

The cover picture shows the one-dimensional polymeric iron(II) spin crossover material, Fe(NCX)2(cddt)·n(guest) (X = S or Se) containing the ligand 2-chloro-4,6-bis(dipyrid-2-ylamino)-1,3,5-triazine. The thiocyanate analogue undergoes a “half” spin crossover, illustrated at the bottom, where at low temperatures there are alternating, crystallographically distinct, high spin (yellow) and low spin (red) iron(II) centres (as can be seen in the structural diagram). The selenocyanate material undergoes a full spin crossover illustrated at the base of the image. Further characterisation of the thiocyanate material has been carried out by powder X-ray diffraction using synchrotron radiation; a representative image is shown in the background of the picture. Details are discussed in the article by K. S. Murray et al. on p. 1073 ff.
