In the centrosymmetric binuclear title complex, [Ag2(NO3)2(C11H8Cl2N4)2]·2CH3CN, the AgI atom is four-coordinated and exhibits a highly distorted tetrahedral coordination sphere defined by three N atoms from two 1-(3,5-dichloropyridin-2-yl)-2-(pyridin-3-ylmethylidene)hydrazine ligands and one O atom from a nitrate anion. Intermolecular N-HO hydrogen bonds link the complex molecules, resulting in a two-dimensional supramolecular structure parallel to (001).
