A new three-dimensional (3D) manganese coordination polymer, [Mn 2(IP)1.5(HCOO)(DEF)]n (1) (H2IP = isophthalic acid, DEF = N,N-diethylformamide), has been solvothermally synthesized in DEF. X-ray single crystal structural data reveal that compound 1 crystallizes in orthorhombic space group Fdd2 and was constructed with infinite zig-zag chains of corner- and edge-sharing octahedral (MnO6) n units interconnected by isophthalate to form a 3D framework. The in situ generated formate ions from the hydrolysis of DEF adopt a special bridging mode to build the secondary building units (SBUs). Variable-temperature magnetic susceptibility of compound 1 exhibits overall weak antiferromagnetic coupling between the adjacent Mn2+ ions.
