The coordination polymer poly[(μ3-3-aminocarbonylpyrazine-2-carboxylato-κ3N1:O2:O2')silver(I)]
Journal article, 2011

The title compound, [Ag(C6H4N3O3)]n or [Ag(pyzca)]n (where pyzca is 3-aminocarbonylpyrazine-2-carboxylate), (I), was obtained by silver-catalysed partial hydrolysis of pyrazine-2,3-dicarbonitrile in aqueous solution. The compound has a distorted trigonal-planar coordination geometry around the AgI ion, with each ligand bridging three AgI ions to form a one-dimensional strand of molecules parallel to the b axis. An extensive hydrogen-bond pattern connects these strands to form a three-dimensional network of mog topology.
