A light change: A linear cyanido-bridged Fe 2Co compound (see picture) exhibits a reversible, thermally induced cooperative charge transfer transition accompanying spin transition and polar-nonpolar transformation in the trinuclear cluster. The change in magnetic properties and polarity could also be induced by irradiation with light.
