Mixing with the guests: Exposure of the porous spin-crossover framework {Fe(pz)[Ptll(CN)4]}to X2(pz=pyrazine; X2=Cl2, Br2, and 12) leads to incorporation of the halides in the coordi natively unsaturated [Ptll(CN)4]2- moieties through oxidative addition, thus affording the mixed-valence series {Fe(pz)[Ptll/IV(CN)4(X)]], which features quite distinct cooperative spin-transition properties.
