Bis(acetyl­acetonato-[kappa]2O,O')(pyridine-[kappa]N)(thio­cyanato-[kappa]N)manganese(III): a redetermination using data from a single crystal

S. Suckert, I. Jess and C. Näther

Abstract: In the crystal structure of the title compound, [Mn(C5H7O2)2(NCS)(C5H5N)], the Mn3+ cation is coordin­ated by two acetyl­acetonate anions, one terminal thio­cyanate anion and one pyridine ligand within a slightly distorted octa­hedron. The asymmetric unit consists of half a complex mol­ecule with the Mn3+ cation, the thio­cyanate anion and the pyridine ligand located on a mirror plane. The acetyl­acetonate anion is in a general position. The title compound was previously described [Stults et al. (1975). Inorg. Chem. 14, 722-730] but could only be obtained as a powder. Suitable crystals have now been obtained for a high-precision single-crystal structure determination.
