The three silver(I) coordination polymers [(Ag2L)(AgNO3)(6)(H2O)] (1), [(Ag2L)(0.5)(AgCF3CO2)(4)(H2O)(2)] (2), and [(Ag2L)(AgCF3CO2)(7)(CH3CN)(3)(mu(2)-H2O)] (3) have been constructed from the flexible multifunctional dianionic ligand L (H2L = 2,2'-bis(prop-2-ynyloxy)biphenyl), providing experimental evidence of coexisting uncommon intermolecular interactions (cation-pi and pi-pi in 1; cation-pi and anion-pi in 2; C N center dot center dot center dot pi and C-H center dot center dot center dot pi in 3) that stabilize their framework structures.
