Abstract: The title complex, [Ag2(C7H5O3)2(H2O)2]·4H2O, is a centrosymmetric bis(carboxylato-2O,O')-bridged binuclear dimer with a strong Ag-Ag interaction. Each AgI atom has a four-coordinate square-planar geometry, in which it is bonded to two carboxylate O atoms, one water O atom and the other AgI atom. All the coordinated and uncoordinated water molecules are disordered; they form a cluster around the dimer through intermolecular hydrogen-bond networks, linking the complex molecules to each other.
