Figure 1

(a) A perspective view of the structure of 1. Note that [Mn(Salen)(MeOH)2]+ cations are represented as space-filling mode and some cations are omitted to show the size and shape of the channel. (b) Schematic diagram showing the packing mode of the chains along and directions. (c) A projection of one anionic chain showing the linkages between the three components and π-π interaction between dpyo and the Salen ligand represented as dotted brown line.
