Three manganese macrocyclic complexes of two anionic N4-donor [1+1] Schiff-base macrocycles that differ in ring size (14 vs 16 membered), HLEt and HLPr (obtained from condensation of diphenylamine-2,2’-dicarboxaldehyde and either diethylenetriamine or dipropylenetriamine), are reported. Specifically, a pair of monomeric complexes MnIILEt(NCS)(H2O) and [MnIIILPr(NCS)2]•0.5H2O, plus a dimeric complex [MnIV2LEt2(O)2](ClO4)2•3DMF have been synthesised and characterised. Single crystal structure determinations on [MnIIILPr(NCS)2]•0.5H2O and [MnIV2LEt2(O)2](ClO4)2•3DMF revealed octahedral manganese centres in both cases: N6-coordinated Jahn-Teller distorted Mn(III) in the former and a pair of N4O2-coordinated Mn(IV) in the latter. UV-vis, IR and EPR spectroscopy as well as magnetic measurements are reported. These macrocyclic complexes feature a simple and original design, and could find future uses as models for manganese catalase or as building blocks for the assembly of larger supramolecular architectures.
