2010_02/2010On the Spin Behaviour of Iron(II)–Dipyridyltriazine Complexes and Their Performance as Thermal and Photonic Spin Switches (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 2/2010)

The cover picture shows the crystal structure of an iron(II) complex with a tridentate triazine-based ligand, one of three complexes whose thermal and photonic spin-dynamics are discussed in the article by G. Hörner, A. Grohmann et al. on p. 221 ff. While there is a competition between spin crossover and ligand exchange upon thermal excitation in solution, the complexes switch cleanly between their stable low-spin and metastable high-spin forms upon photoexcitation.
