My research focuses on a family of trigonal bipyramidal pentanuclear cyanide-bridged clusters of the general formula - [M(tmphen)2]3[M'(CN)6]2 or M3M'2. One objective is to study the spin-crossover behavior of the Fe3Fe2 and Fe3Co2 clusters and to improve its cooperativity. A second objective is to probe photomagnetic behavior in the Co3Fe2, Fe3Fe2, Fe3Co2, and Mn3Fe2 clusters. The ultimate goal is to expand the clusters axially to form higher-nuclearity clusters or chains.
