A new metal-organic framework (MOF) containing a Mn(II) salen complex (BET surface area = 967 ± 6 m2 g-1) undergoes a reversible crystalline-to-amorphous transformation. Experimental studies and computational calculations show that the MOF is stable to a one-electron reduction at more anodic potentials than the corresponding discrete complex.
