This work demonstrates the possibility of modulating the spin state of the FeII sites and subsequently the magnetic properties of a [2×2] FeII grid-like complex by variation of the degree of deprotonation of the hydrazine-based N-H sites of the ligand in the complex. Evidence has been provided, both in the solid state and in solution, towards understanding the strong influence of the spin-crossover process on the pKas of the grid ligands, which exhibit a unique deprotonation pattern. The present study provides a demonstration of the effect of spin state switching of a chemical property, here on ligand pKa in a metallosupramolecular grid.

Incorporating functional molecules into sensor devices is an emerging area in molecular electronics that aims at exploiting the sensitivity of different molecules to their environment and turning it into an electrical signal. Among the emergent and integrated sensors, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are promising for their extreme sensitivity to mechanical events. However, to bring new functions to these devices, the functionalization of their surface with molecules is required. Herein, we present original electronic devices made of an organic microelectromechanical resonator functionalized with switchable magnetic molecules. The change of their mechanical properties and geometry induced by the switching of their magnetic state at a molecular level alters the device’s dynamical behavior, resulting in a change of the resonance frequency. We demonstrate that these devices can be operated to sense light or thermal excitation. Moreover, thanks to the collective interaction of the switchable molecules, the device behaves as a non-volatile memory. Our results open up broad prospects of new flexible photo- and thermo-active hybrid devices for molecule-based data storage and sensors.

A new multi-switchable complex has been
rationally assembled using a redox-active and strongly complexing
bridging ligand. By simple oxidation/reduction, its magnetic properties
can be tuned from a spin-crossover complex, to a single-molecule magnet
with an S = 5/2 spin ground state (when once reduced) and to
diamagnetic species when twice reduced. This work illustrates
experimentally and theoretically how successive redox processes can
increase the spin delocalization, and thus promote a dramatic
enhancement of the intramolecular magnetic coupling through a bridging
ligand, not only in its radical form. This general synthetic approach
should help for the intentional design of new high-spin complexes and
SMMs, but it could also be extended to systems with higher nuclearities
and dimension- alities, for example to obtain high-temperature molecule-
