Two structurally characterized metal-cluster-centered supramolecular architectures named [Ag8(1,2-(C ≡ C)2-C6H4)(Py[6])(CF3CO2)6] · 2.5MeOH (1) and [Ag12(1,2,4,5-(C ≡ C)4C6H2)(Py[6])2(CF3SO3)8]·4MeOH·3H2O (2) are synthesized through the interaction with a bowl-shaped macrocyclic ligand Py[6]. Particularly, two dissimilar silver(I) clusters are resulted in 2 within the structure under the influence of the macrocyclic ligand Py[6]. Such dissimilarity of the silver(I) cluster is also reflected on the structural and photophysical differences between 1 and 2.
