abstract
Several manganese(I) carbonyl species have been prepared as precursors to an oxo-bridged manganese tetramer. In addition to being fragments of the oxo-bridged manganese cluster, these compounds have interesting photochemical and redox properties of their own. Here we present our experiments on the photochemistry, electrochemical, and IR activities of these compounds. We also describe the stability of these compounds in various solvents. In Nature, water-splitting and oxygen evolution take place during photosynthesis, but the structure and mechanism of the oxygen evolving complex of photosystem II are not yet well understood. We have synthesized a novel oxo-bridged manganese tetramer that might undergo oxidation and reduction reactions similar to those that take place in the oxygen evolving cluster of photosystem II.
