Abstract

Bis(imidazolylimine) ligands, H 2L H and H 2L Me, were prepared from hydrazine and 4-formylimidazole or 2-methyl4-formylimidazole (1:2), respectively. Mononuclear iron(II) complexes, [Fe(H 2L H) 2](ClO 4) 2·MeOH and [Fe(H 2L Me) 2]-(ClO 4) 2·2H 2O, were in the LS and HS states, respectively, in the temperature range 5-300 K. A triple-helicate [Fe 2-(H 2L H) 3] (ClO 4) 4, showed an abrupt [LS-HS] to [HS-HS] spin transition at 240K, while [Fe 2(H 2L Me) 3](ClO 4) 4 remained in the LS state in the temperature range 5-300 K.
