Abstract

The reaction of MnF3 with 5,6-dimethylbenzotriazole (Me(2)BTAH) gives the [Mn-8(III)] complex [Mn8O4(OMe)(2)(Me(2)BTA)(6)F-8(Me(2)BTAH)(MeOH)(8)] and the [(Mn3Mn10III)-Mn-IV] complex [Mn13O12(Me(2)BTA)(12)F-6(MeOH)(10)(H2O)(2)]. The octametallic species is an "intermediate" in the formation of the tridecametallic cluster.
