The reaction of [CpMn(CO)(NO)]2 (I) with an equimolar amount of tin dichloride in THF at room temperature gave the product of tin insertion into the Mn-Mn bond, the carbonyl nitrosyl complex [CpMn(CO)(NO)] 2SnCl2 (II). The same complex was formed on treatment of CpMn(CO)(NO)SnCl3 with sodium borohydride. Treatment of I with an excess of anhydrous tin dichloride under the same conditions gave the trinitrosyl complex Cp2Mn2(NO)(μ-NO) 2SnCl3 (III). According to X-ray diffraction, II contains a Mn-Sn-Mn chain with highly shortened Mn-Sn bonds (2.5570(2) and 2.5754(2) Å). Compound III contains a Mn-Mn-Sn chain (Mn-Mn, 2.5358(10); Mn-Sn, 2.5604(8) Å) with the Mn-Mn bond supplemented by two nitrosyl bridges and one terminal NO group.
