Charge-transfer-induced spin transition occurs cooperatively and reversibly in the isolated Fe III 2Co II chains of {[Fe(pzTp)(CN) 3] 2Co(4-styrylpyridine) 2} 2H 2O 2CH 3OH (1). When 1 is irradiated with 532 nm light, it shows single-chain magnetic behavior with no antiferromagnetic ordering after irradiation (see picture; C gray, N blue, B yellow; LS=low spin, HS=high spin).
