Abstract: The centrosymmetric title compound, [Mn2Sn2Se6(C6H18N4)2], contains a central ditetrahedral edge-bridged [Sn2Se6]4- anion, which connects two [Mn(tren)]2+ fragments [tren is tris(2-aminoethyl)amine] through Mn-Se bonds of length 2.608 (2) Å to symmetry-related terminal Se atoms. These Se atoms also participate in additional weak Mn-Se interactions of length 3.122 (2) Å to the Mn atoms of symmetry-related [Mn(tren)}2+ fragments, leading to the formation of infinite chains.
