Variability in the structures of [4-(aminomethyl)pyridine]silver(I) complexes through effects of ligand ratio, anion, hydrogen bonding, and pi-stacking.


The reaction of the asymmetric 4-(aminomethyl)pyridine (4-amp) ligand with silver(I) salts of trifluoromethanesulfonate (triflate, OTf(-)), trifluoroacetate (tfa(-)), or tetrafluoroborate (BF(4)(-)) have produced a variety of one- and two-dimensional structural motifs depending upon the ratio in which the components are mixed. When the proportion of ligand… (More)
