Abstract:The title complex, [Mn(C8H4O4)(C10H8N2)(H2O)]n, takes the form of a zigzag chain, with the terephthalate dianion (tp) acting as a tridentate ligand. The MnII center is surrounded by two tp ligands, one water molecule and one 2,2′-bipyridine (bipy) ligand and exhibits a severely distorted octahedral coordination environment, with cis angles ranging from 57.31 (8) to 123.97 (11)°. The complete solid-state structure can be described as a three-dimensional supramolecular framework stabilized by hydrogen-bonding interactions involving the coordinated water molecule and the carboxy O atoms of the tp ligands, and by – stacking interactions involving the bipy rings and the benzene ring of the tp ligand.
