Graphical Abstract:


One-dimensional Fe(II) chains with 1,2,4-triazole as bridging ligands present the LIESST effect; i.e. their spin state switched from low-spin to high-spin after light irradiation at low temperature. This account summarizes the findings in this area of photomagnetism where 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy was used as a primary detection tool of the LIESST effect.

Keywords: 1D chains, iron, LIESST effect, metastable state, photomagnetism, spin crossover.
