Reactions of quinquedentate Schiff base ligands with Mn and Cu ions afforded icosa- and hexadecanuclear mixed-metal clusters in which dinuclear CuII complexes trapped oxo-bridged [MnIII 8MnIV4O12] and [Mn III6O6] cores, respectively. Maximum entropy method analysis for synchrotron X-ray diffraction data was used to determine the oxidation states of the Mn ions.
