Anion dependence of Ag(I) reactions with 3,6-bis(2-pyridyl)-1,2,4,5-tetrazine (bptz): isolation of the molecular propeller compound [Ag2(bptz)3][AsF6]2. Academic Article uri icon


  • The new compound [Ag(2)(bptz)(3)][AsF(6)](2), prepared from the reaction of bptz with Ag[AsF(6)] in CH(3)CN, is stable in solution as well as the solid-state and exhibits an unprecedented propeller arrangement of three bptz ligands spanning two Ag(i) ions with [AsF(6)](-) anions located in the folds of the cation.
