Abstract: In the title complex, [FeMn(C8H8N3)2Cl2(H2O)2]n, the MnII atom, located on an inversion center, is octahedrally coordinated by two N atoms from two adjacent 1,1'-bis(1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-ylmethyl)ferrocene (btmf) ligands and two Cl atoms forming the equatorial plane, with the axial positions occupied by two O atoms of coordinated water molecules. The btmf ligands link adjoining MnII atoms into a zigzag chain along the a axis. The crystal structure is stabilized by intermolecular O-HN hydrogen bonds, which link the chains, forming a two-dimensional layer parallel to (10); O-HCl interactions link the layers, forming a three-dimensional network.
