The 2D coordination polymers, [Mn(salen)]2[PtII(CN)4]1-x[PtIV(CN)4(I2)]x (salen = N,N'-ethylenebis(salicylideneaminato), x = 0.18 (1), 0.45 (2), 0.85 (3)), have been synthesized via consecutive oxidative additions of iodine to the 2D undulating layers in [Mn(salen)]2[PtII(CN)4]. The presence of I-Pt-I chains perpendicular to the layers and the inhomogeneity of individual I-Pt-I sites were demonstrated. The I-Pt-I chains in 3 give rise to an absorption band involving the excitation that arises from an antibonding nature orbital to the corresponding bonding nature orbital between iodides in the I-Pt-I bridging units. Moreover, variable-temperature X-ray powder diffraction patterns and Raman spectra for 1 and 2 indicate that some I-Pt-I sites display different vibrational energies that are associated with the contraction of the zigzag 2D layers.
