Abstract: Two complexes of the achiral tripodal ligand tris(1-benzimidazolylethyl)amine (nteb), viz., [Mn(nteb)2(H2O)2] (ClO4)2·CH3-OH, 1, and [Ag2(nteb)2](CF3 CO2)2·2H2O, 2, have been synthesized and characterized by IR, 1H NMR, and EPR spectroscopy (1), electrospray mass spectrometry, thermogravimetric analysis, and X-ray crystallography. Compound 1 contains chiral complex cations due to the same handedness of two nteb ligands (δδ or λλ) but crystallizes as a racemate, while 2 contains a dinuclear mesocate because of the opposite handedness (δλ) of two nteb ligands. Crystal data for 1: space group P1 with a = 9.471(4) Å, b = 16.884(7) Å, c = 19.906(8) Å, α = 77.930(7)°, β = 88.063(7)°, γ = 89.706(7)°, V = 3111(2), Å3, and Z = 2. Crystal data for 2: space group P1 with a = 9.3390(12) Å, b = 10.2168(13) Å, c = 16.382(2) Å, α = 75.721(3)°, β = 87.857(3)°, γ = 71.738(3)°, V = 1437.2(3) Å3, and Z = 1. In 1, water serves as an auxiliary ligand, connected to one imidazole N atom of each nteb ligand through a H-bridge; the cationic complexes are associated intermolecularly via π⋯π interactions. In contrast to 1, the coordination to the Ag+ ions in 2 occurs in a heterochiral manner and produces a dinuclear mesocate.
