Solid State Crystal Structures. The crystal structures of [(Me3Si)2C5H3]2Mn, [(Me3Si)3C5H2]2Mn,
[(Me3C)C5H4]2Mn, [(Me3C)2C5H3]2Mn and [(Me3C)3C5H2]2Mn are determined at low temperature (see
Table 2 for details), while that of [(Me3Si)C5H4]2Mn was reported some years ago. 9 Thus, the solid
state structures of the manganocenes described in this paper are known, except for the mixed-ring
metallocene [(Me3C)(Me3Si)C5H3]2Mn; several attempts to grow suitable crystals for an X-ray
diffraction study either by slow sublimation or crystallization failed. The ORTEP diagrams are given in
