Spin crossover star-shaped metallomesogens of iron(II).


Three new types of spin crossover (SCO) metallomesogens of Fe(II) based on symmetric tripod ligands and their magnetic and structural properties are reported here. These were obtained by condensation of tris(2-aminoethyl)amin (tren) with the aldehyde derived from 3-alkoxy-6-methylpyridine (mpyN, N (number of carbon atoms in n-alkyl chains) = 8, 18), 1-alkyl… (More)
