Tetra­kis(μ-phenoxy­acetato-κ2 O:O′)bis­[(1,10-phenanthroline-κ2 N,N′)manganese(II)] methanol hemisolvate

By Dong-Hui Wu, Jian Shi, Yu-Jun Shi and Guo-Qing Jiang


The title complex, [Mn2(C8H7O3)4(C12H8N2)2]·0.5CH3OH, is a carboxyl­ate-bridged dinuclear MnII complex with four phenoxy­acetate ions and two 1,10-phenanthroline mol­ecules as ligands. Each of the four phenoxy­acetate anions bridges the pair of Mn atoms. The asymmetric unit is completed by a half-occupancy methanol solvent mol­ecule. Face-to-face π–π stacking inter­actions between the aromatic rings of 1,10-phenanthroline molecules belonging to adjacent Mn2 complexes, with an inter­planar separation of circa 3.4 Å, and weak C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds connect the dinuclear units into a three-dimensional supra­molecular framework
