A new organic-inorganic hybrid solid with 3-D framework, [Mn(DMF)3]2[Re6Se8(CN)6] (1), has been synthesized and transformed to [H][Mn(salen)]3[Re6Se8(CN)6] (2) by a ligand exchange. Hexarhenium chalcocyanide clusters are closest packed in cubic symmetry for 1 and rhombohedral symmetry for 2. The manganese complexes in the interstitial sites are three-coordinated to the rhenium cluster in 1 and two-coordinated in 2.
