The crystal structure of the title compound, [Mn(C 5 H 4 NCO 2 ) 3 ], H 2 O, has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction at 295 K and refined by least squares to a residual of 0·053 for 2234 ‘observed’ reflections. Crystals are monoclinic, C2/c, a 30·50(2), b 8·387(8), c 13·903(7) ì β94·15(3)°, Z 8. The geometry of the manganese environment displays a pseudo-tetragonal distortion, the axial atoms being nitrogen (Mn-N 2·254(6), 2·217(6) é. The equatorial atoms are at distances Mn-N 2·059(5) ì Mn-0 1·891(5), 1·908(5), 1·942(5) ì the latter being trans to the nitrogen. The occupancy of the water molecule site is 0·54(1).
