Title: Photomagnetic Switching of the Complex [Nd(dmf)[subscript 4](H[subscript 2]O)[subscript 3]([mu]-CN)Fe(CN)[subscript 5]][dot]H[subscript 2]O Analyzed by Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction

Single-crystal XRD experiments (see picture) reveal the excited-state structure of the photomagnetic heterobimetallic title complex. The system shows a decrease in all the iron-ligand bond lengths, suggesting that photoexcitation involves a ligand-to-metal charge transfer or a change in the superexchange coupling between the metal centers.
