In Chap.  2, photo-induced spin-crossover magnetism is demonstrated in iron-ocatacyanoniobate-based three-dimensional spin-crossover compound, Fe 2 II [NbIV(CN)8](4-pyridinealdoxime)8 · 2H2O. In this chapter, utilizing an advantage of spin-crossover phenomenon that can be controlled by ligand substitution, a cyanido-bridged metal assembly was synthesized using FeII, [NbIV(CN)8], and 4-methylpyridine and obtained Fe 2 II [NbIV(CN)8](4-methylpyridine)8 · 2H2O. As a result, I succeeded in observing coexistence of two step spin-crossover behavior and light-induced spin-crossover magnetization.
