Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title coordination polymer, {[Mn(C6Cl2O4)(C10H8N2)]·2C2H5OH}n, consists of one MnII ion, one 2,2'-bipyridine (bpy) ligand, one chloranilate (CA2-) ligand and two ethanol solvent molecules. The MnII ion is octahedrally coordinated by two N atoms of one bpy ligand and four O atoms of two chloranilate ions. The chloranilate ion serves as a bridging ligand between the MnII ions, leading to an infinite zigzag chain along [101]. [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions [centroid-centroid distance = 4.098 (2) Å] is observed between the pyridine rings of adjacent chains. The ethanol molecules act as accepters as well as donors for O-H...O hydrogen bonds, and form a hydrogen-bonded chain along the a axis. The H atoms of the hydroxy groups of the two independent ethanol molecules are each disordered over two sites with equal occupancies.
