The FeIII anionic complex exhibiting cooperative spin transition with a wide thermal hysteresis near room temperature, K[Fe(5-Brthsa)2] (5-Brthsa-H2=5-bromosalicylaldehyde thiosemicarbazone), is reported. The hysteresis shows a one-step transition in heating mode and a two-step transition in cooling mode. X-ray structure analysis shows the coexistence of hydrogen bond and cation-π interactions, along with metal coordination bonds, to give 2D coordination polymer structure.
