2009_06/2009Inter- and Intrachain Spin-Transition Processes in One-Dimensional Polynuclear Iron(III) Complexes of N,N'-Ethylenebis(acetylacetonylideneimine) Bridged by 1,3-Bis(4-pyridyl)propane and 1,4-Bis(imidazolyl)butane (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 6/2009)

The cover picture shows two types of 1D polynuclear spin crossover (SCO) iron(III) complexes, in which planar iron(III) species are bridged axially by a linear bridging ligand to give a 1D structure. In the intermediate spin state between the HS and LS states, the one complex consists of alternately arrayed HS and LS chains, whereas the other consists of alternately arrayed HS and LS units within a chain. The results demonstrate two different SCO transmission mechanisms, that is, SCO occurs in a chain-by-chain manner for the first complex and between adjacent units within a chain for the second one. Details are discussed in the article by N. Matsumoto et al. on p. 721 ff.
