Synthesis and Characterization of MnIII(Salpn)(AcAc) with ligation

Written by Nicolas Introduction MnIII complexes are used extensively in biochemistry, especially when describing the evolution of oxygen in photosynthetic plant cells,1 Manganese catalysis,2 and ribonucleotide reductase.3 The values of transforming a metal halide into a soluble metal ligand complex in organic solvents is extremely beneficiary to such fields of research. The specific metal ligand complex produced entails Manganese3+, a tetradentate ligand N,N’-bis(salicylidene)-1,3-diaminopropane, (Salpn), as well as the bidentate acetyl-acetonate, (AcAc). Herein we report the synthesis of the H2Salpn ligand […]
