catena-Poly[[[aqua­(formato-κO)(1,10-phenanthroline-κ2 N,N′)manganese(II)]-μ-formato-κ2 O:O′] monohydrate]

By Wei Xu


The title compound, {[Mn(HCOO)2(C12H8N2)(H2O)]·H2O}n, consists of polymeric chains of the complex [Mn(HCOO)2(phen)(H2O)]∞ (phen is 1,10-phenanthroline) with solvent water mol­ecules. The chains contain six-coordinate MnII ions bridged by formate anions. They are further extended into a three-dimensional network via O—H⋯O hydrogen-bonding inter­actions and inter­chain π–π stacking inter­actions, with a centroid–centroid distance of 3.679 (4) Å
