A novel five-coordinated Mn(II) polymer 1H-benzimidazole-5,6-dicarboxylato manganese (II) ([Mn(Hbidc)]n, 1) possessing abundant hydrogen bonds and π−π stacking interactions, synthesized by the hydrothermal reaction between MnSO4 and a multifunctional organic aromatic ligand H3bidc, displays antiferromagnetic character, strong long-lived red luminescence (λmax = 726 nm and τ = 0.3 ms) as well as high thermal stability (up to ca. 500 °C).
