Abstract: The title compound, tris[-2,3,5,6-tetraphenylphenoxy(1-)-1:32O,1C2](trifluoromethylsulfonato-2O)disilvergermanium(Ag-Ge) benzene tetrasolvate, Ag[Ge(OC6HPh4-2,3,5,6)3(AgOSO2CF3)]·4C6H6 or [Ag2Ge(CF3O3S)(C30H21O)3]·4C6H6, is a rare example of a compound containing a GeII-AgI bond. The anion consists of a Ge atom bound to three tetraphenylphenoxide ligands and to a molecule of silver trifluoromethanesulfonate. The AgI counter-ion is encapsulated by the three O atoms of the tetraphenylphenoxide ligands and exhibits -interactions with the ortho-phenyl rings of these ligands.
