In the title coordination polymer, [Ag2Cl2(C10H8N2)(C18H15P)2]n, the AgI cation is coordinated by a 4,4'-bipyridine N atom, a triphenylphosphane P atom and two Cl- anions in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. The 4,4-bipyridine and Cl- anions bridge the AgI cations, forming polymeric chains running along [21-1]. In the crystal, weak C-HCl interactions link the polymeric chains into a three-dimensiona supramolecular architecture.
