We have investigated the coordination chemistry of the tripodal alcohols H3thme, H3tmp, Br-mpH3, H4peol and their analogues aepH2 and ampH2, with a particular focus on Mn. In combination with other bridging/chelating ligands such as carboxylates or β-diketonates a plethora of polymetallic clusters whose topologies are based on shared triangular Mn3 units have been synthesised. 25 New complexes are reported. These are: a family of seven “rod-like” structures; a family of three “wheel-like” structures; two supertedrahedra; a family of deca- and tetradecametallic “planar discs”; edge-sharing bioctahedra and a bioctahedral polymer.
