Abstract

The interaction of silver(i) salts with alkenes is shown to be a useful synthon for the assembly of both discrete and polymeric metallosupramolecular architectures. The three isomers of divinylbenzene lead to a diverse range of adducts, seven of which have been structurally characterized by X-ray crystallography.

Despite several attempts, only a partial dataset was able to be collected for this unstable compound. However, this was sufficient to reveal the structure.
