Temperature and light induced bistability in a Co3[Os(CN)6]2 6 H2O Prussian blue analog.
Additional Document Info
To expand the field of new cyanide materials of the 5d elements, we incorporated the [Os(CN)(6)](3-) anion into PB architectures in combination with the Co(II) cation. Herein, we report the first example of a photomagnetic PB analog containing Os(III) ions. In a similar vein as the prototypical CoFe PB analogs, this compound exhibits a wide variety of properties including Charge Transfer Induced Spin Transition (CTIST), Temperature Induced Excited Spin State Trapping (TIESST), and magnetic ordering.
