Reactions of MnCl2·4H2O with 2-(5-bromo salicylideneamino)-1-propanol (H2(5-Br-sap)) under aerobic conditions and with 2-salicylideneamino-1-propanol (H2(sap)) under strict anaerobiosis yielded tri and tetranuclear manganese complexes of [MnIII33-O)(5-Br-sap)3(H 2O)3]Cl·5.5H2O (1) and [MnII4(sap)4(MeOH)4]·2H 2O (2), respectively; the magnetic susceptibility measurements revealed intramolecular antiferromagnetic interactions being operative in both compounds, of which exchange coupling constant for 2 was estimated to be -1.6 cm-1 (H = -2JΣSi·Sj).
