Abstract

A new photo-responsive coordination polymer of [Ni(en) 2] 4[Fe(CN) 5NO] 2 [Fe(CN) 6]·6H 2O synthesized. In this compound, Ni-CN-Fe forms one-dimensional standing-wave-like chains, onto which photo-functional groups of pentacyanonitrosylferrate(II) are appended. Photo-irradiation with blue light at less than 200 K transformed the pentacyanonitrosylferrate(II) from the ground state to a metastable state, which could be reverted to the original state by irradiation with red light.
