Abstract

Sensitive chemo-switchable magnetic materials operating at room temperature are one of the most potential candidates for future chemical devices. Here, we report a discrete iron(III) complex that exhibits high-spin/low-spin switching, sensitive even to rare water-vapor atmosphere above room temperature. The transformation of the hydrogen-bonded network triggered by water molecules is closely associated with the spin-state changing.
