A novel polymeric nitridomanganese(V) complex with a Schiff base ligand [MnN(salpn)] (H2(salpn): N,N′-disalicylidene-1,3-propanediamine) (1) was prepared by photolysis of the azidomanganese(III) complex, [MnN3salpn)] in acetonitrile. The monomeric complex (2) was obtained by recrystallization of 1 from methanol. X-ray crystal structure analyses of 1 and 2 were carried out. The brown complex 1 has a linear ⋯Mn≡N⋯Mn≡N⋯ chain structure.
