Spin crossover and structural phase transition in homochiral and heterochiral Fe[(pybox)2]2+ complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Spin crossover and structural phase transition in three pairs of homochiral and heterochiral [Fe(pybox)2]2+ diastereomers were investigated through magnetic and crystallographic studies. Herein, we show that the spin transition properties of these compounds are strongly related to the homochiral or heterochiral assembly of the ligands and structural phase transition. Our work demonstrates that chirality is a feasible factor to modulate and influence the molecular geometry and thus the spin-crossover properties of complexes.
