PhB(MesIm)3?: Spin Crossover in a Four-Coordinate Iron(II) Complex

  • Carola S. Vogel
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


Spin crossover complexes are characterized by the ability of a transition metal center to undergo a change in electronic configuration in response to external inputs such as heat, light, pressure or changes in magnetic field. Spin crossover is one of the oldest molecular switching phenomena known, and perhaps the most vital, considering its central role in haemoglobin-based respiration.
