Abstract

A detailed crystallographic study of [FeII(LN5)(CN)2]·MeOH (LN5 = 2,13-dimethyl-3,6,9,12,18-pentaazabicyclo[12.3.1]octadeca-1(18),2,12,14,16-pentaene) shows the light-induced formation and thermally-assisted rupture of a metal–ligand coordination bond concomitantly with a spin-crossover process occurring at the Fe(II) center between its low spin (LS) and high spin (HS) states. These results illustrate the remarkable reversibility and non-destructive character of this photo-induced magneto-structural process in a single crystal.
