Novel polymeric nitridomanganese(V) and nitridochromium(V) complexes with a Schiff base ligand, [MnN(salpn)] and [CrN(salpn)] (H2(salpn): N,N'-disalicylidene-1,3-propanediamine) were prepared by photolysis of azido complexes. X-ray crystal structure analyses show that the complexes have an isostructual polymeric structure (⋯M≡N⋯M≡N⋯) with the N⋯M distances being 2.528(3) Å for M=Mn, and 2.508(2) Å for M=Cr.
