Solvent effects on the crystal structure of silver pentacyanocyclopentadienide: supramolecular isomerism and solvent coordination

Author affiliations

Abstract

Several coordination polymers of silver(I)–pentacyanocyclopentadienide (PCC) were studied by X-ray diffraction to examine the effects of different solvents on supramolecular isomerism of the PCC-ligand. While alcohols yield supramolecular isomers of [Ag(PCC)] without coordination of solvent molecules, less polar solvents show coordinate binding. The influence of solvent polarity can be observed by a gradual change in the lattice structure featuring distinct motifs.
