Abstract

The reduction of Mn{C(SiMe3)3}2 with KC8 in the presence of crown ethers yielded the d6, Mn(i) salts [K2(18-crown-6)3][Mn{C(SiMe3)3}2]2 and [K(15-crown-5)2][Mn{C(SiMe3)3}2], that have near-linear manganese coordination but almost completely quenched orbital magnetism as a result of 4s-3dz2 orbital mixing which affords a non-degenerate ground state.
