A new Mn-based complex of {[Mn(L)2(mi)]·H2O}n (1) (HL = p-hydroxy phenylacetic acid; mi = 1,1’-(1,4-butanediyl)bis(imidazole)), has been synthesized and structurally characterized. Single-crystal X-ray analyses reveal that compound 1 has a dinuclear Mn(II) unit linking by four carboxylate groups. The bridging N-donor ligand with mi links the Mn(II) centers into a 1D double chain. The detailed analyses of Hirschfeld surface and fingerprint plots provide insight into the nature of non-covalent interactions in the title compound. Furthermore, an attempt was made to explain the magnetic property of compound 1 using atoms in molecule (AIM) theory.
