Abstract

This study reports a novel family of cage manganesesilsesquioxanes prepared via complexation with bathophenanthroline (4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline). The resulting Mn4-, Mn6Li2-, and Mn4Na-compounds exhibit several unprecedented cage metallasilsesquioxane structural features, including intriguing self-assembly of silsesquioxane ligands. Complexes were tested in vitro for fungicidal activity against seven classes of phytopathogenic fungi. The representative Mn4Na-complex acts as a catalyst in the cycloaddition of CO2 to epoxides under solvent-free conditions to form cyclic carbonates in good yields.
