The spin crossover complex [Fe(dpp)2(NCS)2] · py crystallises in the monoclinic P2/n space group with one guest pyridine molecule per iron complex and undergoes an isostructural phase transition near 100 K on cooling and around 155 K on heating. The space group does not change upon spin transition despite the occurrence of hysteresis with ca. 55 K width, which is clearly seen in the temperature dependence of the lattice parameters. These are highly anisotropic upon spin transition, and surprisingly the unit cell volume reduces only little (0.1%) upon spin transition from high spin to low spin phase. The differences between the high- and low-spin structures are discussed.

Keywords: Spin Crossover Complex; Isostructural Phase Transition; Fe(II)
