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.
