Tetrakis(1-allyl-1H-imidazole-[kappa]N3)bis(thiocyanato-[kappa]N)manganese(II)

J. Zhao and Y.-L. Jin

Abstract: The structure of the title compound, [Mn(NCS)2(C6H8N2)4], consists of isolated molecules of [Mn(NCS)2(Aim)4] (Aim = 1-allylimidazole), which contain a compressed octahedral MnN6 chromophore (site symmetry \\overline1). The NCS- anions are trans and four N atoms from the Aim ligands define the equatorial plane. The mean Mn-N(Aim) and Mn-N(NCS) distances are 2.270 and 2.229 Å, respectively. Weak C-H...N interactions contribute to the crystal packing stability.
