Abstract

The organometallic chemistry of organomanganates is first summarized. X-ray crystallographic analysis revealed many interesting aspects of organomanganate complexes. Not only sigma-bonded manganates but also pai-bonded manganates are intriguing. Second, the application of organomanganates in organic synthesis is described. Organomanganates reacted with carbonyls and organic halides as cuprates do. Halogen-manganese exchange provides a useful transformation of organic halides, especially of dihalo compounds. Carbometalation via manganates shows unique reactivity. Manganates can serve as reducing agents via single electron transfer.
