Abstract

The mol-ecule of the title compound, tetra-μ2-acetato-diaquadi-μ2- chloro-tetra-chloro-tetra-kis[μ4-3-hydroxy-2,2-bis-(oxido-meth-yl) propanol-ato]-tetra-methanoldi-μ3-methanolato-di-μ5-oxo-octa-manganese(II) -tetra-manganese(III), [Mn4 Mn8 (CH3O)2(C2H3O2) 4(C5H9O4)4Cl6O2(CH4O)4(H2O)2], displays a centre of symmetry. The structure of the {Mn4 Mn8 O18Cl2} core is composed of three layers and features two oxo ligands binding in a rare μ5-mode. © 2007 International Union of Crystallography. III II III II 10-
