The new dipnictide, MnSb2, has been synthesized by solid state reaction at 6 GPa and 650°C. MnSb2 has the orthorhombic marcasite-type structure with lattice parameters a = 0.60169(4) nm, b = 0.68812(5) nm and c = 0.33241(4) nm. This phase is the first marcasite-type transition metal dipnictide with formal 3d3 electron configuration.
