Abstract: The crystal structure of dichlorodiaquabis-($p$-dimethylaminobenzaldehyde)manganese(II), [MnCl$_2$(OH$_2$)$_2$(C$_9$H$_{11}$NO)$_2$], was determined from X-ray intensity data. The structure consists of the isolated molecules of the complex. The central Mn atom in the complex is coordinated by txo $p$-dimethylaminobenzaldehyde and two water molecules and also two chlorine atoms, resulting in a distorted octahedral environment. The same molecules or ions occupy {\it trans} positions. The crystal structure is stabilized by weak hydrogen bonds present between the isolated molecules.
