Novel adducts of Mn(II) and Fe(II) saccharinates with imidazole were synthesized and their protonated and deuterated analogues were investigated by the means of FT-IR spectroscopy at room and at liquid-nitrogen boiling temperature. The appearance of the characteristic OH/OD, NH, CO and SO2 stretching bands was employed together with the earlier spectra-structure correlations to predict certain structural details about the complexes. The IR spectra reveal pronounced structural similarity and possible isomorphism with the Co and Ni adducts of formula [M(C3H4N2)4(H2O) 2](C7H4NO3S)2. There is a single crystallographic type of asymmetrically bonded water molecules in the structure. All saccharinato ions are structurally equal. The O-S-O angles should be similar with those in Mg(sac)2·7H2O and Na3(sac)3·2H2O.
