Abstract

The synthesis of the complexes of manganese (II) tetrafluoroborate with 1,10-phenanthroline and 4,4'-bipyridine have been carried out. Elemental analysis, molar conductivity, magnetic properties and infrared (IR) spectral studies were used in characterizing these compounds. Octahedral geometry has been proposed where the ligands behave as bidendates coordinating through the amine.
