Two dinuclear iron(II) complexes [Fe2(μ-L)2]X4*4DMF (X = BF4– (1·4DMF) and ClO4– (2·4DMF)) with a 1,3,4-thiadiazole bridging ligand have been synthesized and show a very distinct solvent-depending SCO behavior. The complexes represent new solvatomorphs of the first dinuclear iron(II) complexes with the ligand L (2,5-bis[(2-pyridylmethyl)amino]methyl-1,3,4-thiadiazole). The incorporated lattice DMF molecules directly affect the spin state of these complexes. This behavior reveals a structural insight into the role of the solvent molecules on the spin transition.
