Abstract: The self-assembly of an angular 2,5-bis(pyridin-2-yl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole ligand (L) with silver nitrate (AgNO3) produced a new dinuclear silver(I) coordination complex, [Ag2(C12H8N4S)2(NO3)2]·4H2O, which crystallizes with two Ag atoms bridged by two L ligands. The Ag atom is surrounded by four N atoms of L and by one O from the nitrate anion defining a distorted square pyramid. The atoms comprising the dication are nearly coplanar, with an r.m.s. deviation of 0.1997 Å. Molecules are linked by C-HO and O-HO hydrogen bonds through nitrate anions and water molecules, forming a two-dimensional porous network. The overall structure involves stacking of Ag complex layers along the b axis. The cohesion in the three-dimensional architecture is ensured by OAg interactions.
