Two manganese(III) azide complexes capped with tetradentate Schiff bases were characterized structurally and magnetically. The replacement of halogens on the Schiff bases leads to a drastic structural alteration from a dimer (1) bridged by phenoxide to a one-dimensional chain (2) linked by azide in a single end-to-end mode. Notably, magnetic studies of 2 show the concomitant existence of spin canting and metamagnetism.
