Catena-poly[[silver(I)-μ-1,4-bis(2-methyl-1H-imidazol-1-ylmethyl) benzene-k2N3:N3′ ] nitrate]

Dobrzanska L. ; Lloyd G.O. (2006)


In the title complex, {[Ag(C16H18N 4)]NO3}n, the cationic part forms infinite chains where the AgI ions are coordinated in a slightly bent fashion by two N-donor atoms of imidazole rings of two distinct ligand molecules. The nitrate anions interact weakly with the silver cations to form infinite strands running in the c-axis direction, approximately perpendicular to the cationic chains. The resulting layers are stabilized by offset π-π interactions between benzene rings. Furthermore, a set of C - H⋯O and π-π interactions (imidazole rings) between adjacent layers results in the formation of a three-dimensional assembly. © 2006 International Union of Crystallography.
