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)
One-dimensional (1D) coordination polymers of formula [Fe(NH(2)trz)(3)]A.nH(2)O, {A = TiF(6)(2-), n = 0.5 (1) and n = 1 (2); A = ZrF(6)(2-), n = 0.5 (3) and n = 0 (4); A = SnF(6)(2-), n = 0.5 (5) and n = 1 (6); A = TaF(7)(2-), n = 3 (7) and n = 2.5 (8); A = GeF(6)(2-), n = 1 (9) and n = 0.5 (10), NH(2)trz = 4-amino-1,2,4-triazole} have been synthesized,(More)
An Al(3+) selective ratiometric fluorescent probe (L) has been synthesized by condensation of 4,5-diaminopyrimidine with 1-pyrenecarboxaldehyde. The structure of L has been confirmed by single crystal X-ray analysis. In the presence of Al(3+), L exhibits a considerable excimer emission at 445 nm along with the decrease of its monomer emission at 368 nm in(More)
An efficient Al(3+) receptor, 6-(2-hydroxybenzylideneamino)-2H-chromen-2-one (HBC), has been synthesized by condensing salicylaldehyde with 6-aminocoumarin. The molecular structure of HBC has been determined by a single crystal X-ray analysis. It was established that in the presence of Al(3+), HBC shows 25 fold enhancement of fluorescence intensity which(More)
The thermally induced hysteretic spin transition (ST) that occurs in the polymeric chain compound [Fe(NH(2)trz)(3)](NO(3))(2) (1) above room temperature (T(c)(upward arrow) = 347 K, T(c)(downward arrow) = 314 K) has been tracked by (57)Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy, SQUID magnetometry, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and X-ray powder diffraction (XPRD)(More)
A rhodamine-pyrene hybrid molecule acts as a colorimetric and fluorimetric sensor for Al(3+) through time dependent PET-CHEF and FRET processes associated with tri-color emission. Intracellular Al(3+) has been visualized through time dependent blue-green-red emission. The lowest limit of detection for Al(3+) is 0.02 μM.
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)
