A new mixed-valence hexanuclear manganese(II,III) complex, [Mn 6O2(O2CPh)8(L)3] (HL = 1-phenyl-3-pyridin-2-yl-propane-1,3-dione), has been synthesized and characterized structurally and magnetically. The complex contains a new [Mn II3MnIII3O2] 11+ structural topology. The frequency dependence of out-of-phase component in alternating current magnetic susceptibilities for the complex indicates superparamagnetic behavior.
