Kurzfassung englisch:
A thorough investigation into the role of the counterion and
occluded solvent on the structure and spin-crossover behaviour
of the threefold interpenetrated network [Fe(4ditz)3]2+
[4ditz = 1,4-bis(tetrazol-1-yl)butane] is presented. As seen by
X-ray single crystal diffraction, changing the hexafluorophosphate
anion in the previously investigated trigonal
phase [Fe(4ditz)3](PF6)2 to tetrafluoroborate causes the butylene
spacers to adopt three different conformations, whereupon
the symmetry is reduced to triclinic (space group P1¯).
X-ray powder diffraction and NMR spectroscopy provide evidence
for the incorporation of statistically distributed ethanol
molecules in the cavities of the compound, whose amount
We have recently published structural and magnetic data
obtained from a series of spin crossover (SC) ditetrazole
complexes with alkylene bridges between the coordinating
tetrazoles [1,n-bis(tetrazol-1-yl)alkane]. The bridging carbon
chain was altered between n = 5-10 and 12 using BF4
and n = 4-10 and 12 with ClO4
- as anion. Absmeier et
al.,[1,2] showed, as expected, a decrease in Fe-Fe interactions
as the alkylene spacer is extended. This effect is ob-

depends on whether absolute ethanol or a binary system,
ethanol/water (95:5, v/v), is used as solvent. The phase precipitated
from EtOH/H2O features a metastable high-spin
(HS) state when rapidly cooled, a sharp spin transition to a
mixed HS/LS (1:1) state at around 90 K on slow cooling with
an approximately 10 K hysteresis and LIESST appears,
whereas the sample synthesised from absolute ethanol shows
a more gradual spin transition at the same temperature without
