In the title compound, [Ag(NO3)(C18H14N4)]n, the AgI atom is coordinated by two N atoms from two N,N'-bis(3-pyridylmethylidene)benzene-1,4-diamine (bpbd) molecules and two O atoms from a bidentate nitrate anion. The bpbd molecules bridge the Ag atoms into a chain. Two adjacent chains are further connected by Ag...Ag interactions [3.1631 (8) Å], forming a double-chain structure. A [pi]-[pi] interaction [centroid-centroid distance = 3.758 (3) Å] occurs between the double chains. Interchain C-H...O hydrogen bonds are observed.
