Mechanochemical synthesis of cooperative spin crossover materials

Askew, Jed H., Shepherd, H.J. (2017) Mechanochemical synthesis of cooperative spin crossover materials. Chemical Communications, 54 . pp. 180-183. ISSN 1359-7345. E-ISSN 1364-548X. (doi:10.1039/C7CC06651A)


We describe the synthesis of switchable spin crossover materials via mechanochemistry for the first time. Three chemically diverse spin crossover materials have been produced using solvent-free grinding. Crucially, cooperative spin transition behavior and crystallinity is retained, presenting exciting opportunities for the discovery of new materials with switchable magnetic, optical and structural properties.
