Abstract

After a brief history of the discovery of the elemental manganese, and a description of its basic properties, the results previously obtained by quantum chemical calculations on different classes of small Mn compounds are reviewed. These include the dimer and clusters (Mn)n, hydrides MnHn, halogenides MnXn with X = F, Cl, Br, oxides MnnOx, carbonyls Mnn(CO)x, half-sandwich complexes CpMn(CO)n and sandwich complexes (Cp)2Mn and derivatives. The molecular properties considered range from the electronic structure to the spectroscopic and thermochemical parameters. Behaviour of Mn as a dopant in clusters is also presented.
