Single crystal X-ray analysis of the hexanuclear silver(I) complex Ag6[o-Ph2P(C6H4CO2)-O,P]6, synthesized by treatment of Ag(CF3SO3) with N(CH2CH2NH2)3, 1,3-dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCC) and o-Ph2PC6H4(CO2H) in 1:1:3:3 molar ratio in ethanol, shows that the complex is centrosymmetric and consists of three independent silver(I) centres linking together via non-chelating tri- and tetradentate bridging o-(diphenylphosphino)benzoate groups.
