An “Off-axis” Mn–Mn bond in Mn2(CO)10 at high pressure

Author affiliations


At variance with what was previously reported, Mn2(CO)10 does not transform its conformation from staggered to eclipsed in the high pressure crystal form. X-ray powder diffraction, DFT calculations and Raman spectroscopy show that the staggered conformation is retained. Instead, a rotation and a translation of the Mn(CO)5 pyramidal units produce an “off-axis” and rather shorter Mn–Mn bond.
