Very little cyclic voltammetry data for tris(polypyridine)manganese(II) complexes, [MnII(N^N)3]2+, where N^N is bipyridine (bpy), phenanthroline (phen) or substituted bpy or phen ligands, respectively; are available in the literature. Cyclic voltammograms were found for tris(4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline)manganese(II) perchlorate only. In addition to our recently published related research article, the data presented here provides cyclic voltammograms and corresponding voltage-current data obtained during electrochemical oxidation and the reduction of four [MnII(N^N)3]2+ complexes, using different scan rates and analyte concentrations. The results show increased concentration and scan rates resulting in higher Mn(II/III) peak oxidation potentials and increased peak current-voltage separations of the irreversible Mn(II/III) redox event. The average peak oxidation and peak reduction potentials of the Mn(II/III) redox events stayed constant within 0.01 V. Similarly, the average of the peak oxidation and reduction potentials of the ligand-based reduction events of [MnII(N^N)3]2+ were constant within 0.01 V.
