Title

A Study of the Electronic and Structural Properties of Bis(pyridine)dichloroiron(II)

Abstract

Bis(pyridine)dichloroiron(II), Fe(py)2Cl2, has been prepared by two different methods. The structure of the material at room temperature has been shown to be polymeric and to possess two symmetric bridging chloride ligands which are equivalently bonded between two iron atoms. On the basis of the Mössbauer spectral properties of the two preparations, it has been concluded that the crystalline material undergoes a transformation at lower temperatures to a polymeric structure containing asymmetric bridging chloride ligands. The magnetic and electronic spectral properties of these materials have been measured and the results are discussed in terms of the proposed structural change at low temperature.
