Abstract

The ground spin-state of [Cu(phpyNO)2(H2O) 2](BF4)2 was switched between Stotal = 1/2 and 3/2 across 175 K. On warming, the space group was changed from P212121 to C2221 in a single-crystal-to-single-crystal manner, and the transient structure could be monitored by means of the crystallographic analysis. The copper-radical exchange coupling changed from 2J/kB = -463(3) to +312(6) K with rather small Cu-O-N-C2py twisting deformation on one side, while practically no distortion occurred on the other.
