Solvothermal reaction of a mixture of Sn, Mn, and Te at 200 degrees C using teta as the solvent yields a novel inorganic-organic hybrid solid [Mn(teta)(en)].[Mn(teta)][Mn(SnTe4)2.Mn(teta)] (teta=triethylenetetramine and en=ethylenediamine; 1), which has a homochiral single-stranded helical structure. The material is a semiconductor with a band gap of 0.88 eV and shows paramagnetic behavior between 2 and 300 K.
