Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The title compound exists as a ID coordination polymer consisting of succinate anions, manganese cations and 2,2 ' -bipyridyl molecules. Twelve water molecules are present in the unit cell and are part of a hydrogen bonding system. Some of these waters are binding to manganese cations while others are only participating in hydrogen bonding. The structure has a monoclinic space group P2(1)/c with a = 8.2750(3) Angstrom, b = 11.5104(3) Angstrom and c = 16.9113(6) Angstrom, beta = 95.2727(16); V = 1603.96(9) Angstrom (3) and Z = 4.
