A tridentate ligand L has been synthesised from salicylaldehyde and 1-dimethylamino-2-propylamine It undergoes partial hydrolysis to regenerate salicylaldehyde in methanolic KOH solution Reaction of manganese (II) acetate with this solutionfollowed by addition of sodium thiocyanateproduces a dark brown complex [Mn (L) (NCS){o- (CHO)C6H4O}] (1)which has been crystallographically characterised Coordination of Mn is Jahn-Teller distorted octahedral by Lsalicylaldehydeand thiocyanate The coordinated aldehyde group reacts with 2-aminoethanol and with 2-aminophenol to give mononuclear neutral Mn (III) complexes 2 and 3respectivelywith mixed Schiff-base ligands[Mn (L) (L′)] Complexes 1 and 2 are high-spinwhile 3 is low-spin © 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd All rights reserved.
