A charge-transfer-induced spin transition in the discrete cyanide-bridged complex [[Co(tmphen)2]3[Fe(CN)6]2]. Academic Article uri icon


  • A charge-transfer-induced spin transition (CTIST) is observed in the discrete cyanide-bridged complex, {[Co(tmphen)2]3[Fe(CN)6]2}. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction, 57Fe Mssbauer spectroscopy, and magnetic susceptibility were used collectively to describe the oxidation states of the Co and Fe ions in this cluster as a function of temperature. This pentanuclear complex represents the first example of a CTIST at the discrete molecular level.
