Abstract: The crystal structures of the title compounds, [Mn(phen)2Cl2] (I) and [Mn(bipy)2Cl2] (II), have been determined at 150 K. The manganese atoms in both compounds are coordinated by four pyridine nitrogen atoms from two 1,10-phenanthroline or 4,4;-bipyridine ligands and two chloride anions, resulting in a distorted cis-MnN4Cl2 octahedral geometry. Both complexes are connected through C–H···Cl hydrogen bonds into frameworks. The π-π stacking interactions are observed in crystal structure of both ones.

Keywords: , X-ray, crystal structure, 1,10-phenanthroline, 4,4'-bipyridine
