Reactions of [Mn2(μ-pyS)2(CO)6] (pySH=pyridine-2-thiol) with triphenylphosphine (PPh3), diphenylphosphine (PHPh2) and bis(diphenylphosphino)methane (dppm): X-ray crystal structure of [Mn(pyS)(η1-dppm)2(CO)2]

The dimeric complex [Mn2(μ-pyS)2(CO)6] (1) reacted with 2 M equivalents of both PPh3 and PHPh2 to give the respective monomeric phosphine complexes [Mn(pyS)(L)(CO)3][L = PPh3 (2) and PHPh2 (3)]; with 4 M equivalents of dppm, it yielded the complex [Mn(pyS)(η1-dppm)2(CO)2](4). An X-ray structure determination of 4 shows that it crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/n with a = 11.027(3), b = 24.984(7), c = 18.379(5) Å, β = 99.870(8)°, V = 4988(2) Å3, and Z = 4. The complex has an octahedral geometry with the chelating pyS ligand and two CO groups occupying the equatorial sites and the two monodentate dppm ligands lying in the trans positions.
