The heat capacity, electrical conductivity and optical properties of mononuclear manganese(III) heterochelates with tetradentate schiff base were investigated. The specific heat capacities of [Mn(III)(L1)(acac)] and [Mn(III)(L1)(sal)] complexes were found as 0.883-2.345 J/g.deg. and 0.994-2.300 J/g.deg. in the temperature range 0-900C, respectively. The temperature dependence of electrical conductivity, ï³, shows a typical semiconducting behavior. Optical absorption studies in the wavelength of range 190-1100 nm at room temperature showed that the allowed direct optical band gap Egd of [Mn(III)(L1)(acac)] and [Mn(III)(L1)(sal)] complexes were 1.96 and 2.00 eV, respectively.
