Tricarbonyl[tris(1-methyl-1H-imidazol-2-yl-[kappa]N3)methanol]manganese(I) trifluoromethanesulfonate

G. J. Reiss and P. C. Kunz

Abstract: In the title compound, [Mn(C13H16N6O)(CO)3](CF3O3S), the MnI atom has a slightly distorted octahedral geometry. The three CO ligands have C-Mn-C angles in the range 89.44 (10)-92.31 (9)°, while the three N atoms of the tripodal ligand form significantly smaller N-Mn-N angles of 82.76 (2)-85.51 (6)°. The three N atoms of the tripodal ligand and the three carbonyl ligands coordinate facially. In the crystal, the trifluoromethanesulfonate counter anion is connected by a medium-strength O-H...O hydrogen bond to the hydroxyl group of the manganese complex.
