Structural variations in manganese halide chain compounds mediated by methylimidazolium isomers
MetadataShow full item record
The structures of two new hybrid organic–inorganic manganese halide compounds [1MiH]MnCl3(H2O) and [4MiH]MnCl3(H2O) ([1MiH] = 1-methylimidazolium, [4MiH] = 4-methylimidazolium) have been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Both are composed of one dimensional [MnCl3(H2O)]n− edge-sharing octahedral chains. The structures are compared to the previously reported isomeric analogue [2MiH]MnCl3(H2O) ([2MiH] = 2-methylimidazolium), and three closely related compounds. The variations in packing of the inorganic chains are shown to be influenced by hydrogen bonding abilities of the imidazolium or related moieties. Both new compounds show intense red luminescence at ambient temperature under UV irradiation.
