Title

On the Orbital Ground State and the Magnitude of the Quadrupole Interaction in Some High-spin Iron(II) Pyridine Complexes

Abstract

Mössbauer spectra of the pseudooctahedral complex trans-Fe(pyridine)4(NCS)2 have been measured at 4.2°K in applied magnetic fields of up to 60 kG. The principal component of the electric field gradient tensor is positive and consistent with a 5B2g ground electronic state in a tetragonal local site symmetry. The sign of the quadrupole interaction is discussed in relation to a number of recent investigations in which orbital ground terms are assigned solely on the basis of the magnitude and temperature of the quadrupole interaction.
