methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl

An organomanganese compound with a piano-stool structure which is used as a power-boosting and octane-enhancing gasoline additive.

Toxicology
MMT’s environmental and health impact is uncertain; it is thought to have less of an environmental impact than tetraethyl lead, which it essentially replaces.
