Synthesis and Structure of Tetrakis Carboxylato-Bridged Dinuclear Manganese(II)Quinoline Complexes, with Carboxylates Diphenylacetate and 2, 2-Diphenylpropanoate
Two dinuclear Mn(II) quinoline complexes with diphenylacetate <B>1</B> or 2,2-diphenylpropanoate <B>2</B> have been prepared. Single crystal X-ray crystallography revealed the molecular structure to be the form of copper(II) acetate's. Bonding distances Mn-Mn, Mn-O, and Mn-N for <B>1</B> are 3.131(2), 2.116, and 2.193(5) Å, respectively, and those for <B>2</B> are 3.168(4), 2.117, and 2.215(4) Å, respectively. Anomalousness of Mn-Mn magnetic interaction of this type complexes is demonstrated.
