[silver thiosaccharinate]
The crystal structure of the title compound [Ag2(C7H4NO2S2)2]n is described in this article. This new silver thiosaccharinate consists of dinuclear units in which two thiosaccharinate anions each bridge two silver atoms (by the endocyclic N and exocyclic S atoms) across a crystallographic center of inversion midway between the Ag atoms. The dimeric units are connected via Ag—Sexo interactions to create two-dimensional networks. The Ag—Ag distance [2.9194(4)Å] can be considered a strong argentophilic interaction.
