48_26b/2009Inside Cover: Bidirectional Chemo-Switching of Spin State in a Microporous Framework (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 26/2009)

Bidirectional chemo-switching of magnetism occurs in a microporous coordination polymer containing spin-crossover subunits, as described by M. Ohba, J. A. Real, S. Kitagawa, and co-workers in their Communication on page 4767 ff. In situ magnetic measurements reveal that most guest molecules transform the framework spin state from diamagnetic low spin (red) to paramagnetic high spin (yellow), whereas the guest CS2 stabilizes the low-spin state. These induced spin states are retained as a memory effect after the release of the guest.
