    • Abstract


      Two Ag(I) complexes, [Ag(HL)2]ClO4 (1) and [Ag(HL)2]NO3·H2O (2), where HL is pyridine 2– carboxamide, have been synthesized and characterized by various spectroscopic techniques. The X-ray crystal structural analyses indicate that both the complexes consist of slightly distorted square planar silver(I) ions and ligand-supported weak Ag⋯Ag metallophilic interactions. Both the complexes show photoluminescence in solid state and acetonitrile solution at room temperature. Antimicrobial studies have been performed with these silver(I) complexes against various gram +ve, gram −ve bacterial and fungal species.
