Original Paper


The Ag(I) and Cu(I) complexes of 4-amino-3,5-dipentyl-4H-1,2,4-triazole (4-NH2-3,5-(C5H11)2tz) and 3,5-dipentyl-1H-1,2,4-triazole (3,5-(C5H11)2tzH) have been synthesized and characterized. X-Ray analysis shows that {Ag4[4-NH2-3,5-(C5H11)2tz]6}(BF4)4 is a tetranuclear complex featuring an Ag4tz6 cluster; {Ag[3,5-(C5H11)2tz]}n exhibits a 3D structure of lvt-a topology; and {Cu2[3,5-(C5H11)2tz]Br}n is a Cu4Br4-cluster based 3D complex with the dia topology.
