Title

Salts of the Two-coordinate Homoleptic Manganese(I) Dialkyl Anion [Mn{C(SiMe3)3}2]2- with Quenched Orbital Magnetism

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. © 2015 Royal Society of Chemistry.
