Two interpenetrating networks of 34- and 68-membered manganese-containing macrocycles with the manganese atoms in octahedral environments (see picture) are present in the polycatenane structure of the title compound. This arrangement is stabilized by face-to-face and edgo-to-face π–π interactions. The mechanism of formation of this complex structure is as yet unclear.
