Diverse aspects of the energetics of organomanganese compounds are considered in this chapter. Bond energies, enthalpies of formation and enthalpies of reaction are discussed. Classical combustion calorimetry plays only a small role compared to reaction calorimetry and techniques from contemporary ion energetics. While carbonyl, cyano, cyclopentadienyl, and benzene derivatives dominate the discussion, species with numerous other σ and/or π-bonded ligands also appear. Quantitation is given whenever possible.
