Two unprecedented organic–inorganic hybrid complexes, [Mn(L)3]MnCl4 (1) and [Mn(L)3]MnBr4 (2), have been synthesized in 88–92% yields via reaction of Mn(II) halides with Ph2P(O)CH2C(O)NEt2 (L) in a 3:2 M ratio. X-ray diffraction analysis of 2 reveals that the metal ion of the [Mn(L)3]2+ cation has an octahedral geometry, while the [MnBr4]2− anion contains tetrahedrally coordinated Mn(II). At ambient temperature, the solid complexes 1 and 2 exhibit bright deep-red phosphorescence (λmax em = 660 and 670 nm) with the lifetimes of 3–3.7 ms and photoluminescence quantum yields of 6% and 27%, respectively.
