Abstract

Fe(ptz)6(BF4)2 (ptz = 1-propyltetrazole) is an iron(II) spin-crossover system which shows light-induced excited spin state trapping. In this paper we show that (a) the same phenomenon can also be observed in Zn1−xFex(ptz)6(BF4)2 (x ≈ 0.1) and is therefore basically a single-ion property, and (b) that the phenomenon is reversible. The efficiency of the light-induced spin crossover is of the order of 0.5% in the forward direction and 0.1% in the reverse direction.
