Abstract

The silver(I) alkyl complex [{2-(Me3Si)2C(Ag)C 5H4N}2], prepared by the reaction of the analogous lithium alkyl with AgBF4 in tetrahydrofuran, is a binuclear complex in which the metal ion is not involved in electron-deficient bonding, being bound by a carbon atom at 2.154(5) Å and a nitrogen atom of a centrosymmetrically related ligand at 2.160(5) Å; the Ag⋯Ag′ separation is 2.654(1) Å.
