Bis{μ-2,2′-[1,1′-(ethane-1,2-diyldinitrilo)diethyl­idyne]diphenolato}bis­[(benzoato-κO)manganese(III)] dihydrate

By V. S Thampidas, T. Radhakrishnan and Robert D. Pike


The title compound, [Mn2(C18H18N2O2)2(C7H5O2)2]·2H2O, was synthesized by the reaction between manganese(II) benzoate and the Schiff base generated in situ by the condensation of ethane-1,2-diamine and o-hydroxy­aceto­phen­one. The Jahn–Teller-distorted manganese(III) ions of the centrosymmetric dimer are connected through phen­oxy bridges. Hydrogen-bonding inter­actions between the uncoord­in­ated C=O of the benzoate and uncoordinated water mol­ecules link the dimers into a chain running parallel to the c axis
