The synthesis and X-ray crystal structures of the monomethyl and -phenyl manganese complexes [LMn(μ-Me)]2 (2) and LMnPh (3) (L = HC(CMeNAr)2, Ar = 2,6-iPr2C6H3) are reported. These complexes represent the first structurally characterized neutral dimeric manganese(II) monoalkyl complexes and monomeric manganese(II) monoaryl complexes. Furthermore, compound 3 shows an interesting coplanar arrangement of the phenyl group and the chelating ligand.
