The title compound, (C8H20N)[Mn2(C6H5O)3(CO)6], was synthesized from [Mn(CO)3(CH3CN)3]BF4 and (C8H20N)(OC6H5). The binuclear anion exhibits a pseudo-threefold symmetry and contains two six-coordinate Mn atoms. Each metal atom is coordinated by three facially oriented CO ligands and three doubly-bridging phenolate ligands. The average O-Mn-O bond angle is 74.9 (7)° in the Mn2O3 metal-phenolate dimeric core, yielding a distorted octahedron for each metal.
