This report describes the synthesis, characterization, and X-ray crystal structures of two Mn(III) complexes, Mn(DMHP)3 x 12H2O and Mn(DMHP)2Cl x 0.5H2O (DMHP = 1,2-dimethyl-3-hydroxy-4-pyridinone). Mn(DMHP)2Cl was prepared from the reaction of Mn(II) chloride with 2 equiv of DMHP under reflux in the presence of triethylamine. Mn(DMHP)3 was obtained by reacting Mn(II) acetate with 3 equiv of DMHP in the presence of sodium acetate. Mn(DMHP)3 could also be prepared by reacting Mn(OAc)3 x 2H2O… CONTINUE READING
