Mössbauer and electronic absorbance spectroscopy along with variable temperature magnetic moment measurements demonstrate that a cyclotriphosphazene substituted with an iron(II)-bis-2,6-di(1H-pyrazoly-yl)pyridine moiety (1) and its polyphosphazene analogue (2) differ significantly in magnetic behaviour. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
