Abstract: Spin crossover requires cooperative behaviour of the metal centers in order to become useful for devices. While cooperativity is barely predictable in solids, we show here that solution processing and the covalent introduction of molecular recognition sites allows the spin crossover of iron(III) sal2trien complexes to be rationally tuned. A simple correlation between the number of molecular recognition sites and the spin crossover temperature enabled the fabrication of materials that are magnetically bistable at room temperature. The predictable behaviour relies on combining function (spin switching) and structure (supramolecular assembly) through covalent interactions in a single molecular building block.
