The title compound. [Mn2Ni(C20H20N 2O2)2(CN)4(H2O) 2], is the first chiral trinuclear complex having an Mn III-NC-NiII-CN-MnIII unit. A pair of the trans sites of [Ni(CN)4]2- links two MnIII units. The MnIII ion has a pseudo-octahedral coordination geometry with the four donor atoms of the tetradentate chiral Schiff base forming the equatorial plane, and with a bridging cyanide and an aqua ligand at the axial positions.
