Manganese pentafluoride is a binary hypothetical inorganic compound of manganese and fluorine with a chemical formula of MnF5.[1][2]

Physical properties

Manganese(V) fluoride is believed to be unstable both in a condensed state and gaseous phase.[3] Computational studies predict it will have trigonal bipyramidal molecular geometry.[2]
