Abstract:The title compound, (pentaethylenehexamine-6N)manganese(II) 4,4′,6,6′-tetrahydroxy-2,2′-spirobi(cyclotriboroxane)(1−), [Mn(C10H28N6)][B5O6(OH)4]2, was synthesized under mild solvothermal conditions. The B5O6(OH)4− units are connected to one another via hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional framework with large channels along the a and c axes, in which the templating [Mn(C10H28N6)]2+ cations are located. The MnII complex cation has a twofold axis and the coordination geometry of the MnN6 group is that of a distorted trigonal prism.
