Methods have been developed for covalently linking [Mn4O 2(O2CPh)6(dbm)2] 2 (dbmH = dibenzoylmethane) units to give a dimer and a polymer; treatment of 2 with trans-1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethene (bpe) or 4,4′-bipyridine (4,4′-bpy) yields [Mn4O2(O2CPh)6(dbm) 2(bpe)]2 4 and [Mn4O2(O 2CPh)6(dbm)2(4,4′-bpy)]n 5, respectively.
