Abstract

The structure of Mn(dca)2(H2O)2·2Me4pyz (dca = dicyanamide, N(CN)2-; Me4pyz = tetramethylpyrazine) contains one-dimensional polymeric chains of Mn(dca)2(H2O)2. The Me4pyz molecules hydrogen-bond to the water ligands, and form ⋯Me4pyz⋯H2O⋯Me4pyz⋯ H2O⋯ chains which flank either side of the coordination polymer chains. Magnetic susceptibility studies show that very weak intra-chain antiferromagnetic-coupling occurs.
