The asymmetric redox-active ligand 4,5-bis(pyridine-2-carboxamido)-1,2-catechol (N,OLH4) is prepared and metalated to afford the hexanuclear complex [Mn6(N,OL)6]6-. Structural analysis and magnetic measurements reveal this complex to feature MnII ions bridged by N,OL3-· radicals, which are antiferromagnetically coupled to give an S = 12 ground state.
