[Mn(ND3)6](N3)2 was obtained by careful decomposition of [Mn(ND3)6](N3)2·4ND3 at room temperature. It crystallizes in the monoclinic space group I2/m with a = 8.5905(5), b = 6.8506(4), c = 9.7530(6) Å, β = 94.618(6)°, V = 572.10(6) Å3, Z = 2, at T = 3 K. Its crystal structure was elucidated using powder neutron diffraction and confirmed by quantum chemical calculations. The MnII cation is coordinated octrahedron-like by ND3 ligands. The azide anion is linear with 178.7(10)° and shows N-N distances of 1.178(11) and 1.180(12) Å.
