(Figure Presented) The facile synthesis of a novel electron-precise paramagnetic hexamanganese carbonyl selenide cluster [Se6Mn 6(CO)18]4- (1 ) was discovered, which demonstrates contrasting reactivity toward O2 and Se8 under markedly mild conditions to afford the O- and Se-inserted clusters [Se6Mn6(CO)18(O)]4- (2) and [Se 10Mn6(CO)18]4- (3), respectively. Clusters 1-3 represent the first examples of electron-precise paramagnetic main-group transition metal carbonyl clusters, and their formation and bonding properties are further elucidated by theoretical calculations.
