Iron(II) complexes with tris(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)methane {HC(3,5-Me 2Pz) 3} of the composition [Fe{HC(3,5-Me 2Pz) 3} 2]A m • nH 2O (A = Cl - (I), ClO4 (II), SO 2- 4 (III), CF3SO3 (IV), m = 1, 2, n = 0.1) are synthesized. The compounds are studied by static magnetic susceptibility, IR and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy, and X-ray structure analysis. The crystal structures of two polymorphous modifications of the [Fe{HC(3,5-Me 2Pz) 3} 2](ClO 4) 2 (IIa and IIb) and [Fe{HC(3,5-Me 2Pz) 3} 2](CF 3SO 3) 2 (IV) complexes are determined. The temperature dependence (J. eff(T) shows that the spin crossover 1A1 5T 2 is observed in the polycrystalline phase of complex I and in one of the single-crystal phases of complex II (IIa) and is accompanied by thermochromism (the change of the dark pink color to white).
