Treatment of the complex Mn(CH 35 -C 5 H 4 )(CO) 2 PPh 3 with a one molar proportion of iodine yields MnI 2 (OPPh 3 ) 2 as the only isolable product. An X-ray crystal structure determination shows that the complex has a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The Mn II I bond lengths are 2.6687(5) and 2.6614(8) Å and the IMnI bond angle is 113.67(2)°, while the Mn II O bond lengths are 2.008(3) and 2.005(4) Å and the OMnO bond angle is 104.9(2)°.
