The electrochemical and spectroscopic properties of these amphiphilic complexes are virtually unaffected upon alteration of the alkoxy substituents, thus providing a system in which the physical behavior and the metal-centered chemical activity can be tailored independently. The amphiphilic character has been exploited for preparing Langmuir monolayers at the air-water interface and for constructing Langmuir-Blodgett films, hence allowing for hierarchical assembling of electronically and magnetically active systems. While Langmuir films were stable, transfer onto solid supports was limited, which restricted the magnetic analysis of the Langmuir-Blodgett assemblies.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||RSC Publishing||Copyright (published version):||2010 Royal Society of Chemistry||Keywords:||Langmuir Blodgett;Self-assembly;Spin crossover;Solid state interactions;Redox active||Subject LCSH:||Thin films, Multilayered
