Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Six new manganese(II) complexes of formulas [Mn2(Rmal)2(H2O)2(azpy)]n (1–3), [Mn(Phmal)(H2O)(azpy)]n (4), [Mn2(Et2mal)2(H2O)4(azpy)2]n (5), and [Mn(Bzmal)(H2O)3(azpy)] (6) [azpy = 4,4′-azobispyridine (1–6), Rmal = methylmalonate (Memal) (1), dimethylmalonate (Me2mal) (2), and butylmalonate (Butmal) (3), Phmal = phenylmalonate (4), Et2mal = diethylmalonate (5), and Bzmal = benzylmalonate (6)] were synthesized and structurally characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Complexes 1–3 are three-dimensional compounds whose structure consists of corrugated layers of manganese(II) linked through syn–anti carboxylate (Rmal) bridges, which are pillared through the bis-monodentate azpy molecule. Complex 4 has a layered structure of manganese(II) ions connected by carboxylate (Phmal) bridges in the syn–anti coordination mode as in 1–3, the azpy group acting here as a terminally bound monodentate ligand. The structure of 5 consists of Et2mal–Mn(II) neutral chains linked through the azpy ligand, giving rise to a complex three-dimensional network. Complex 6 is constituted by neutral [Mn(Bzmal)(H2O)3(azpy)] mononuclear units, which are interlinked through O–H···O, O–H···N, and π–π type intermolecular interactions to afford a three-dimensional supramolecular structure. The topological analysis of these crystallographic structures shows the occurrence of four different nets: a (3,4)-connected InS-type (1–3), a binodal layered hcb (4), a uninodal CdS-type (5), and a (4,5)-connected tcs topology (6). The magnetic properties of 1–5 were investigated in the 2.0–300 K temperature range. Overall antiferromagnetic behavior occurs in 1–4 with susceptibility maxima in the range 2.8–5.5 K, the exchange pathway being provided by the syn–anti carboxylate (substituted malonate) bridge [manganese–manganese separation in the range 5.4365(3)–5.5274(1) Å]. Very weak antiferromagnetic interactions are observed in 5 through the trans-bis-monodentate Et2mal ligand, the intrachain manganese–manganese separation being 7.328(3) Å. The much larger manganese–manganese separation through the bis-monodentate azpy ligand in 1–5 (values greater than 13.5 Å) accounts for the lack of any significant magnetic interaction though this extended bridge.
