High pressure crystallography of inorganic and organometallic complexes

Crystallographic work on transition metal complexes at high pressure has been used broadly either to explore intra- and inter-molecular potentials, or to modify the properties of functional materials. In the former category, it has been shown that high-pressure alters intermolecular interactions, such as hydrogen bonds, but also intramolecular properties such as bond distances and angles, conformation and coordination number. Intramolecular effects have been used to study the effect of pressure on exchange and spin state in magnetic materials, while tuning of intermolecular interactions strongly affects conductivity in stacked 1D molecular metals.
