The dark side of the Mn: A manganese(III) complex bearing a 13-membered macrocyclic ligand (1, see picture) binds a peroxo ligand in a side-on η2 fashion. The reactivity of 1 is influenced by the introduction of anionic ligands trans to the peroxo group. Electronic and structural changes upon trans-ligand binding explain the increased nucleophilicity of the resulting complexes 1-X.
