The First X-Ray Structure of a Silver–Nucleotide Complex: Interaction of Ion Ag(I) with Cytidine-5’-Monophosphate

Abstract

Herein we report the first X-ray solid state characterization of a Ag(I) complex with cytidine-5’-monofosfate (HCMP) of formula Ag(HCMP)·H2O. The coordination of Ag(I) to HCMP is via both the N3 and O2 atoms of two cytosine moieties and the phosphate group. Short Ag(I)-Ag(I) distances (2.99 Å) suggests an interesting argentophilic attraction as a stabilization source of the final solid state structure along with ancillary O···Ag, H-bonding and π···π interactions that have been rationalized using DFT calculations.
