Accessing a new molecular scaffold for Fe(II) spin state switching through first coordination changes
Presented in this dissertation are the syntheses and characterizations of iron spin state switching complexes. The magnetic properties are extremely sensitive to environmental changes such as ligand field, coordination environment, and crystal packing. These studies focus on developing a better understanding of how the magnetic properties of iron complexes can be controlled by environmental modifications. The first chapter provides a detailed introduction to spin state switching. The chapter includes the origins of the phenomenon and background into previous efforts to modify the spin switching ...
