Abstract Reaction of [Ag(CH 3 impy) 2 ]PF 6 , 1 , with Au(tht)Cl produces the monometallic Au(I)-species [Au(CH 3 impy) 2 ]PF 6 , 2 . Treatment of 2 with excess AgBF 4 in acetonitrile, benzonitrile or benzylnitrile produces the polymeric species {[AuAg(CH 3 impy) 2 (L)](BF 4 ) 2 } n , (L = CH 3 CN, 3 ; L = C 6 H 5 CN, 4 ; L = C 6 H 5 CH 2 CN, 5 ) where the Au(I) centers remain bound to two carbene moieties while the Ag(I) centers are coordinated to two alternating pyridyl groups and a solvent… CONTINUE READING
