Two-dimensional assemblies of triazole-based spin-crossover nanoparticles (SCO NPs) presenting different morphologies are prepared and electrically characterized. The thermal hysteresis loop in the electrical conductance near room temperature correlates with the NP morphologies and their 2D organization. The unprecedentedly large difference - up to two orders of magnitude - in the electrical conductance of the two spin states is of interest for applications.
