Geometry, energy and magnetic characteristics of binuclear compounds of 5,6-bis(salicylideneimino)-1,10-phenanthroline with cobalt and iron have been computationally studied by means of density functional theory method (DFT UTPSSh/6-311++G(d, p)). Complexes comprising two magnetically active fragments capable of manifesting spin-crossover and valence tautomerism have been constructed via completion of the coordination sphere of the metal ions with ancillary ligands. These effects provide for
