Abstract

Silver(I) ions do not act as templates for the formation of planar macrocyclic ligands based upon 2,2′-bipyridine or 1,10-phenanthroline, but incorporation of silver(I) into the performed macrocycles, obtained from transient template reactions, is facile. The complexes so obtained have a 1:1 ratio of silver to macrocycle. The crystal structure of the complex [Ag2L2][BF4]2 reveals a dimeric structure in the solid state with two distinct silver environments. Crystallographic data: space group P21/n, a=18.295(3), b=9.763(2), c=25.643(5) Å, β=105.03(1), V=4665 Å3, Z=4.
