The article deals with coordination compounds of iron(II) that may exhibit thermally induced spin transition, known as spin crossover, depending on the nature of the coordinating ligand sphere. Spin transition in such compounds also occurs under pressure and irradiation with light. The spin states involved have different magnetic and optical properties(More)
Iron(II) spin crossover molecular materials are made of coordination centres switchable between two states by temperature, pressure or a visible light irradiation. The relevant macroscopic parameter which monitors the magnetic state of a given solid is the high-spin (HS) fraction denoted n(HS), i.e., the relative population of HS molecules. Each spin(More)
A β-aminoacid ester was successfully derivatized to yield to 4H-1,2-4-triazol-4-yl-propionate (βAlatrz) which served as a neutral bidentate ligand in the 1D coordination polymer [Fe(βAlatrz)(3)](CF(3)SO(3))(2)·0.5H(2)O (1·0.5H(2)O). The temperature dependence of the high-spin molar fraction derived from (57)Fe Mossbauer spectroscopy recorded on cooling(More)
We have investigated the suitability of using the 1D spin crossover coordination polymer [Fe(4-(2'-hydroxyethyl)-1,2,4-triazole)3]I2∙H2O, known to crossover around room temperature, as a pressure sensor via optical detection using various contact pressures up to 250 MPa. A dramatic persistent colour change is observed. The experimental data, obtained by(More)
A symmetry breaking spin transition in a Mn(III) complex is reported with three structural phases, a high symmetry high temperature S = 2 phase, an intermediate S = 1/S = 2 ordered phase and an aperiodic low temperature phase with S = 1 cations. The aperiodicity is interpreted as resulting from long-range ordering of the NTf2(-) anions.
The possibility of a new design concept for dual spin crossover based sensors for concomitant detection of both temperature and pressure is presented. It is conjectured from numerical results obtained by mean field approximation applied to a Ising-like model that using two different spin crossover compounds containing switching molecules with weak elastic(More)
The complex [Ni{2-PyNHC(S)NP(S)(OiPr)(2)-1,5,7-N,N',S}(2)] ([NiL(I)(2)]) dissolved in tri-n-octylphosphine (TOP) is decomposed in hot hexadecylamine (HDA) to give TOP-capped Ni nanoparticles. The same procedure using [Ni{2-MeC(6)H(4)NHC(S)NP(S)(OiPr)(2)}(2)-1,3-N,S] ([NiL(II)(2)]) and [Ni{PhC(S)NP(S)(OiPr)(2)-1,5-S,S'}(2)] ([NiL(III)(2)]) leads to the(More)
Reaction of the mononuclear Ni(II) complex [Ni{2-Py(6-NH2)NHC(S)NP(S)(OiPr)2}2] with different salicylaldehydes leads to new antiferromagnetically coupled trinuclear double-stranded helicates , where Ni(II) metal ions are coordinated by two bis-anionic thiourea ligands and two deprotonated molecules of the corresponding aldehyde.
The crystal structures of two mononuclear Cu(II) NH2trz complexes [Cu(NH2trz)4(H2O)](AsF6)2 (I) and [Cu(NH2trz)4(H2O)](PF6)2 (II) as well as two coordination polymers [Cu(μ2-NH2trz)2Cl]Cl∙H2O (III) and [Cu(μ2-NH2trz)2Cl] (SiF6)0.5∙1.5H2O (IV) are presented. Cationic 1D chains with bridging bis-monodentate μ2-coordinated NH2trz and bridging μ2-coordinated(More)
There are currently extended experimental and theoretical developments of spin crossover nanomaterials, in particular based on coordination polymers for the design of smart applications. In this context, we have reproduced a three step thermal transition in a cubic spin crossover nanomaterial with a system dimension of 5 ˆ 5 ˆ 5 metallic centers. For this(More)
