Resumen:
Two mononuclear MnIII complexes [Mn(3,5-F2salpn)(H2O)2][B(C6H5)4]·2H2O(1·2H2O) and [Mn(3,5-Cl2salpn)(OAc)(H2O)]·H2O (2·H2O), where H2salpn =1,3-bis(salicylidenamino)propane, have been prepared and characterized. Thecrystal structure of 1·H2O shows that this complex forms -aqua dimers with ashort Mn···Mn distance of 4.93 Å. Under anaerobic conditions, the twocomplexes are stable in solution and possess trans-diaxial symmetry with thetetradentate Schiff base ligand symmetrically arranged in the equatorial plane.When left in air, these complexes slowly dimerize to yield high-valent[MnIV2(3,5-X2-salpn)2(-O)2] in which each X2-salpn ligand wraps the two Mnions. This process is favored in basic medium where the deprotonation of thebound water molecule is concomitant with air oxidation. The two complexescatalyze the dismutation of superoxide (superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity)and peroxide (catalase (CAT) activity) in basic medium. The phenyl-ringsubstituents play an important role on the CAT reaction but have little effect on SOD activity. Kinetics and spectroscopic results indicate that 1 and 2 catalyze H2O2 disproportionation through a cycle involving MnIII2 and MnIV2 dimers, unlike related complexes with a more rigid and smaller chelate ring, which employ MnIII/MnV=O monomers.
