Liquid crystalline salen manganese(iii) complexes. Mesomorphic and catalytic behaviour

Author affiliations

Abstract

Several salen manganese(III) complexes displaying stable columnar mesophases in a wide range of temperatures have been synthesized. In condensed phases the molecules are assembled into dimers through intermolecular manganese–oxygen interactions and the columnar structure of the mesophases consist of the stacking of supramolecular discs formed by the association of two or three dimers, depending on the number and location of alkoxy chains in the complex. The catalytic activity of the complexes in solution has been studied, and they behave as efficient homogeneous catalysts in the epoxidation of styrene with iodosylbenzene as oxidant.
