Abstract

Novel μ511, η112 and μ5- η1112, η2 coordination modes of alkyl and aryl ethynide moieties are found in silver(I) complexes 1-5, and the metal-ligand distances can be classified into σ, π and mixed (σ,π) types. With the consistent square-pyramidal capping Ag5 baskets of the ethynide moiety as supramolecular synthons, a series of two- and three-dimensional coordination networks are obtained.
