Manganese(II) chloride complexes with 3,4- and 3,5-lutidine have been prepared. The crystal symmetry and cell dimensions have
been calculated on the basis of powder diffraction data. The compounds were characterised also by FT-IR spectrometry. The
thermal decomposition of the complexes has been studied by thermogravimetry and DSC. By plotting densities vs. molar mass,
the diagram obtained has correspondence to similar observations in other solid metal-lutidine complex systems.
