The development of new magnetic materials is a key challenge in recent chemistry and physics. The design of magnetic coordination polymers has attracted much attention, because the intrinsic tunability of both the electronic and structural properties provides potential for multifunctional magnets. Therefore, the magnetic coordination polymers controllable by the external stimuli, which can be applied to electronic switching devices, have been investigated intensively. In particular, photomagnetism, i.e., controllable magnetism by light irradiation, is one of the best studied multifunctional magnetisms. In this chapter, the recent progress in the development of photomagnetic organic-inorganic hybrid materials is summarized.
