Abstract

Four silver(I) compounds, [Ag(dapn)(dnbc)]n·1.5nH2O (1), [Ag(en)]n[Ag(dnbc)2]n·2nH2O (2), [Ag(en)]n[Ag(nbc)2]n·2nH2O (3) and [Ag(dapn)]n-(nbc)n·2nH2O (4), where dapn = 1,2-diaminopropane, dnbc = 3,5-dinitrobenzoate, en = 1,2-diaminoethane and nbc = 4-nitrobenzoate, have been synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction. The Ag(I) ions show T-shaped coordination geometry in compound 1 but linear coordination geometry in compounds 2, 3 and 4. There are ligand-unsupported Ag…Ag interaction in compounds 2 and 3 with Ag…Ag distance of 3.177 ~3.267 Å. All the four complexes showed high cytotoxicity properties.
