Abstract: A novel two-dimensional coordination polymer, poly[[[mu]2-1,3-bis­(2-methyl-1H-imidazol-1-yl)propane]di-[mu]4-iodido-di-[mu]3-iodido-silver(I)], [Ag4I4(C11H16N4)]n, (I), has been synthesized by solvothermal reaction of AgNO3, KI and 1,3-bis­(2-methyl-1H-imidazol-1-yl)propane (bmimp). In (I), the two unique AgI cations have AgNI3 and AgI4 four-coordinated tetra­hedral geometries. The bmimp ligand has imposed twofold symmetry. The AgI cations and iodide anions form a unique one-dimensional polymeric column motif incorporating [Ag6I6] hexa­gonal prisms, which are then connected by bmimp ligands to form two-dimensional organic-inorganic layers. The layers are arranged in parallel in an ABAB fashion and are packed into the resultant three-dimensional supra­molecular framework by van der Waals inter­actions.

Formula: [Ag4I4(C11H16N4)]
