In the title complex, [Co(CN)(2)(C(18)H(18)N(4))]PF(6), the Co(III) atom together with one of the pyridyl rings and two cyanide anions are located on a mirror plane, while the P atom is located on an inversion centre. The Co(III) atom exhibits an octa-hedral geometry, coordinated by four N atoms from the tris-(2-pyridyl-meth-yl)amine ligand with an average Co-N distance of 1.953 (2) Å, and two cyanide C atoms with an average Co-C distance of 1.895 (2) Å. The crystal packing is stabilized by inter-molecular C-H⋯N and C-H⋯F inter-actions.

    ABSTRACT: Single-chain magnets (SCMs) that exhibit slow relaxation of their magnetization are attracting considerable attention. To tune the properties of such materials with external stimuli such as light, heat, and pressure is a challenge. Through the exploitation of light and heat induced transformation between diamagnetic Fe(II)(LS)(mu-CN)Co(III)(LS) (LS = low spin) units and paramagnetic Fe(III)(LS)(mu-CN)Co(II)(HS) (HS = high spin) units, we show the photoswitched transformation from a paramagnetic state to an antiferromagnetic ordered SCM state and the thermally induced reverse transformation, thus providing an effective way to control the spin topology of the SCM via light or a thermally induced metal-to-metal charge transfer.

    ABSTRACT: An account is given of the development of the SHELX system of computer programs from SHELX-76 to the present day. In addition to identifying useful innovations that have come into general use through their implementation in SHELX, a critical analysis is presented of the less-successful features, missed opportunities and desirable improvements for future releases of the software. An attempt is made to understand how a program originally designed for photographic intensity data, punched cards and computers over 10000 times slower than an average modern personal computer has managed to survive for so long. SHELXL is the most widely used program for small-molecule refinement and SHELXS and SHELXD are often employed for structure solution despite the availability of objectively superior programs. SHELXL also finds a niche for the refinement of macromolecules against high-resolution or twinned data; SHELXPRO acts as an interface for macromolecular applications. SHELXC, SHELXD and SHELXE are proving useful for the experimental phasing of macromolecules, especially because they are fast and robust and so are often employed in pipelines for high-throughput phasing. This paper could serve as a general literature citation when one or more of the open-source SHELX programs (and the Bruker AXS version SHELXTL) are employed in the course of a crystal-structure determination.

    ABSTRACT: A cyanide-containing cobalt(III) complex, [Co(phen)2(CN)2][Co(phen)(CN)4] · 4.5H2O (1: phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) has been synthesized by hydrothermal techniques and characterized by elemental analyses, IR spectroscopy, UV–vis spectroscopy and single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods. The complex is triclinic, space group P 1 , with a = 11.0047(16), b = 12.9587(19), c = 15.076(2) Å, α = 100.060(2), β = 102.061(2), γ = 91.803(2)°, V = 2065.0(5) Å3, Z = 2, and R 1 [I > 2σ(I)] = 0.0481. The molecular unit of 1 consists of a cation/anion pair with interstitial water molecules in the crystal lattice. The combination of coordinative, hydrogen bonding and π–π stacking interactions results in the stabilization of a supramolecular solid-state architecture.
