Temperature dependent nuclear inelastic-scattering (NIS) of synchrotron radiation was applied to investigate both spin states of the spin-crossover complex [Fe(tpa)(NCS)2] (tpa = tris(2-pyridylmethyl)amine). A remarkable increase of the iron-ligand bond stretching upon spin crossover has unambiguously been identified by comparing the measured NIS spectra with theoretical simulations based on density-functional calculations.
