A neutral Fe(III) compound exhibiting a two-step spin transition and dielectric anomalies. Academic Article uri icon


  • The mononuclear ferric compound Fe(H-5-Cl-thsa-Me)(5-Cl-thsa-Me)H2O () was synthesized and characterized using powder/single-crystal X-ray diffraction, Mssbauer spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and magnetic susceptibility measurements. This photo-responsive compound shows reversible, two-step spin-crossover behaviour. Moreover, dielectric anomalies were observed during the spin transitions, demonstrating the multifunctional properties of compound .
