Abstract Self assembly of Mn(II) perchlorate and bis(pyrazolo)-s-triazine pincer ligand (L) in methanol-water mixture afforded the homoleptic [MnL2](ClO4)2 complex (1) as plate colorless crystals. Following the crystallization process till the near dryness of the solution, we noted few needle like crystals of the heteroleptic [MnL(H2O)3](ClO4)2·H2O complex (2). Their molecular and supramolecular structures were analyzed using single crystal structure combined with Hirshfeld analysis. The packing of complexes 1 and 2 is dominated by weak CH⋯O and strong OH⋯O hydrogen bonds, respectively, as well as anion-π stacking interactions. Using Hirshfeld analysis, the percentages of the O⋯H intermolecular contacts are 32.7% and 36.8% for 1 and 2, respectively. The MnN distances correlated well with the atoms in molecules (AIM) topological parameters. The amount of electron density transferred from the ligand units to the manganese centre are nearly the same (0.9 e) in both complexes.
