Abstract

In iodine-bridged binuclear Pt compounds, [Formula presented] and [Formula presented] ([Formula presented]), electronic structures on the PtPtI chains have been controlled between a diamagnetic charge-density-wave (CDW) state and a paramagnetic charge-polarization (CP) state by modification of the counterions ([Formula presented], [Formula presented]) located between chains. In the [Formula presented] compound, a pressure-induced CP to CDW transition with a drastic color change is identified. This transition is accompanied by a large hysteresis loop within which photoinduced transition between CDW and CP can be driven by selecting the excitation photon energy.
