Recently, we have developed several synthetic routes to the new classes of chalcogen-containing manganese carbonyl clusters, and the interesting structural transformations and reactivity of the resultant clusters have been investigated as well. In this short review, the syntheses and bonding modes of the sulfur, selenium, and tellurium-containing manganese carbonyl complexes reported by our laboratory will be presented, and the cluster growth and transformation will be systematically compared and discussed.
