Single crystals of Ba(Fe1−xMnx)2As2, 00.1–0.2. Our measurements show that whereas the structural/magnetic phase transition found in pure BaFe2As2 at 134 K is initially suppressed by Mn substitution, superconductivity is not observed at any substitution level. Although the effect of hydrostatic pressure up to 20 kbar in the parent BaFe2As2 compound is to suppress the structural/magnetic transition at the approximate rate of 0.9 K/kbar, the effects of pressure and Mn substitution in the x=0.102 compound are not cumulative. Phase diagrams of transition temperature versus substitution concentration x based on electrical transport, magnetization, and thermopower measurements have been constructed and compared to those of the Ba(Fe1−xTMx)2As2 (TM= Co and Cr) series.
