Guidelines to design new spin crossover materials


This review focuses on new families of spin crossover (SCO) complexes based on polynitrile anions as new anionic ligands or on polyazamacrocycles as neutral macrocyclic ligands. We have shown that the structural and electronic characteristics (original coordination modes and high electronic delocalization) of the polynitrile anions can be tuned by slight chemical modifications such as substitution of functional groups or variation of the negative charge to design new discrete or polymeric SCO systems. In our ongoing work on the design of new molecular systems based on new ligands that can be fine-tuned via chemical modifications, another promising way which has been recently developed in our group concerns the use of new neutral polydentate ligands which are able to tune the ligand field energy around the metal centre. Here we report some recent original Fe(II) SCO complexes based on such polydentate ligands.
