- Manganese complexes of α-hydroxy acids (H2L) have been implicated in the basidomycete oxidative degradation pathway of lignin. In this contribution, we evaluate the chemistry of manganese(III) and manganese(IV) α-hydroxy acid compounds using lactic acid (H2Lc), 2-hydroxy-2-ethylbutyric acid (H2HEB), and 2-hydroxyisobutyric acid (H2HIB). Both oxidative and reductive methodologies to give compounds of stoichiometry (Cat)3[(Cat)MnIV2L6], (Cat)3[MnIII2(L)4HL] and (Cat)2[MnIII(L)2HL] have been explored. The X-ray structure of 1, Na3[NaMnIV2(HIB)6]·4MeOH, which was prepared by the reaction of MnCl2, H2HIB, and NaOCH3 in methanol, reveals a mixed-metal trinuclear cluster composed of two Mn(IV) octahedra that are bridged by a sodium ion. The face-shared geometry leads to a very short Mn-Na distance (2.98 A). 1 is a unique Mn(IV) complex with all oxygen ligation and containing redox-innocent ligands. The O(3)O(3′) coordination shell is trigonally compressed along the face containing the three alkoxide ligands. The X-band EPR spectrum of 1 at 100 K is consistent with an isolated S = 3/2 spin system. The Mn(III) dimer (TMA)3[MnIII2(Lc)4HLc]·H 2O (5) can be prepared by the reaction of tetramethylammonium permanganate ((TMA)MnO4), H2Lc, and (TMA)OH in methanol. An excess of ligand allows for the reduction of the Mn(VII) to Mn(III). The X-ray structure of 5 provides the first example of an Mn(III) dimer with axial compression. Two MnIIILc2 units, having a propeller configuration, are bridged by the carboxylate of an HLc-, having a protonated hydroxyl oxygen atom, and weak bridges from coordinated alkoxides of the adjacent MnIIILc2 unit. The Mn-Mn separation is 3.09 A. A third compound of composition (Cat)2[MnIII(L)2HL] has also been prepared by both reductive and oxidative methodologies and is most likely an infinite chain structure that has a trans-MnIIIL2 plane that is linked by the anti-anti coordination of carboxylate oxygens of an HL-. The relevance of these manganese α-hydroxy acid complexes to structural proposals for the oxygen-evolving complex and diffusible intermediates of the manganese lignin peroxidase is discussed.
