A large spin-crossover [Fe4L4]8+ tetrahedral cage

Author affiliations

Abstract

A large discrete face-capped tetranuclear iron(II) cage, [Fe4L4](BF4)8·n(solvent), was synthesised via metal-ion directed self-assembly. The cage is formed from a rigid tritopic ligand that incorporates chelating imidazole-imine functional groups. The cage displays temperature induced spin-crossover and LIESST effects and is amongst the largest iron(II) tetrahedral cages with such properties reported. The synthesis, structure and magnetic properties of this new metallo-cage are presented.
