Abstract

Treatment of (NBun4)[Mn4O 2(O2CPh)9(H2O)] with Na 2(Et2mal) in MeCN leads to a nuclearity and oxidation level change to give (NBun4)2[Mn 8O4(O2CPh)12(Et2mal) 2(H2O)2] 1; the crystal structure and magnetochemical studies show the core of the anion to have a unique topology consisting of two linked [Mn4O2] butterfly units and to possess an S = 3 ground state, respectively.
