We have applied nuclear inelastic scattering (NIS) and computational predictions based on density functional theory (DFT) to explore the vibrational dynamics of 57Fe in a trinuclear oxo-bridged iron(III) complex. Quantitative comparison of the experimentally measured vibrational dynamics of the Mössbauer nuclei 57Fe, with normal mode analysis, calculated via quantum chemical calculation based on DFT methods generally yields a good overall agreement and enables the assignment of Fe vibrational modes. The oxidation and spin state of the complex were determined by 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.
