Five seven- or eight-coordinate manganese complexes of hydrazone ligands have been prepared. Three seven-coordinate neutral Mn(II) complexes: [Mn(dapA2)]n (1), [Mn(dapB2)(H2O)2] (2), [Mn(dapS2)(H2O)2] (3) have been synthesized from the bis-Schiff bases of 2,6-diacetylpyridine: dap(AH)2, dap(BH)2 and dap(SH)2 (AH = anthraniloyl hydrazide, BH = benzoyl hydrazide, SH = salicyloyl hydrazide), respectively. Two eight-coordinate Mn(II) complexes: [Mn(dapS)2] (4) and [Mn(dapB)2].3H2O (5) have been synthesized from the mono-Schiff bases dapBH and dapSH, respectively. The complexes have been characterized by elemental analyses and by IR, UV-Vis., FAB mass, EI mass and EPR spectroscopy. The molecular structures of 1, 3.DMF and 4.DMF have been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The mono-Schiff bases are monoanionic and the bis-Schiff bases are dianionic. The octa-coordinated mono-Schiff base complex 4 adopts a dodecahedral geometry, while the hepta-coordinated bis-Schiff base complex 1 forms a one-dimensional linear polymeric chain. A weak antiferromagnetic exchange interaction (J=-0.15 cm(-1)) between the Mn(II) ions in is attributed to weak Mn...Mn interaction through the PhNH(2) moiety of the ligand, as indicated by extended-Hückel molecular orbital calculations. A good simulation of the EPR spectrum of a frozen solution (DMSO at 4 K) of compound 1 was obtained with g=2.0, D=0.1 cm(-1), E=0.01 cm(-1). The EPR spectrum of a powdered sample of compound 1 shows a large broadening of the signal, due in part, to the important zero-field splitting of the hepta-coordinated Mn(II) ion.
