Three tetracyanide-containing building blocks K2[M(CN)4] (M = Ni, Pd, Pt) and one semi-closed macrocycle seven-coordinated manganese(II) compound have been employed to assemble cyanide-bridged heterometallic complexes, resulting in three cyanide-bridged MII-MnII complexes: [Mn(L)][Ni(CN)4]·2H2O (1) [Mn(L)][Pd(CN)4] (2) and [Mn(L)][Pt(CN)4] (3) (L = 2,6-bis[1-(2-(N-methylamino)ethylimino)ethyl]pyridine). Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis shows their similar one-dimensional structure consisting of the alternating [Mn(L)]2+ species and [M(CN)4]2– building blocks, generating a cyanide-bridged neutral polymeric chain. In all three isostructural complexes the coordination geometry of manganese ion is a slightly distorted pentagonal-bipyramidal with the two cyanide nitrogen atoms at the trans positions and N5 coordinating mode at the equatorial plane from ligand L. Investigation over magnetic properties of these complexes reveals very weak antiferromagnetic interaction between neighboring Mn(II) ions bridged by the long NC–M–CN unit. A best-fit to the magnetic susceptibility of complexes 13 leads to the magnetic coupling constant of J = –0.081, –0.103 and –0.14 cm–1, respectively.
