Poly[bis(2,6-pyridinediylmethylidenenitrilohexamethylidene)iron sulfate] was said to be a ferromagnetic compound by earlier investigators. This polymer and its derivatives are carefully reprepared and their unusual magnetic property is reinvestigated spectroscopically. The counter anion species and spacer length of the polymers affect their coordination structure and magnetism. Mossbauer spectroscopy and x-ray diffractometry on the polymers indicate that their unusual magnetic property is caused by the ferromagnetic iron oxide slightly formed in the polymers.
