Reaction of 2 equivalents of the deprotonated ligand, L2-, with manganese(II) under ambient conditions involves one-electron oxidation of the latter to afford the title complex; a single-crystal X-ray diffraction study of this heteroleptic complex has shown the MnIII ion to be in a compressed rhombic octahedral environment in accordance with a pseudo-Jahn-Teller compression.
