Spin crossover phenomena in Fe(ii) complexesDedicated to Professor F. A. Cotton on occasion of his 70th birthday.

The behaviour of spin crossover compounds is among the most striking and fascinating shown by relatively simple molecular species. This review aims to draw attention to the various ways in which spin crossover phenomena are manifested in iron(II) complexes, to offer some rationalisation for these, and to highlight their possible applications. Typical examples have been selected along with more recent ones in order to give an overall view of the scope and development of the area. The article is structured to provide the basic material for those who wish to enter the field of spin crossover.
