Synthesis, structure and anti-fungal activity of dimeric Ag(I) complexes containing bis-imidazole ligands.
Five Ag(I) complexes containing the ligands bis(imidazol-2-yl)methane (2-BIM) and its derivatives were prepared and [Ag2(2-BIM)2](ClO4)2 and [Ag2(2-BIM(Bz)OH)2](ClO4)2 EtOH were characterised using X-ray crystallography. In each dimer the two Ag(I) ions are two-coordinate and there are small but definite argentophilic Ag-Ag (d10-d10) interactions. All of the complexes display anti-fungal activity when tested in vitro against the fungal pathogen Candida albicans.
