The new macrocyclic dicyanoargentate complex Cs(dibenzo-24-crown-8)[Ag(CN)2] has been prepared and studied by means of X-ray diffraction (monoclinic, space group P21/a, with a = 12.730(3), b = 15.443(3), c = 15.323(3) Å, V = 3005(1) Å3 Z = 4, R1 = 0.041; wR2 = 0.048 for 5488 unique reflections with I > 3σ(I)). The lattice consists of complex Cs(db-24-crown-8)+ cations (as an example of the "wrap-around" structure) and [Ag(CN)2]- anions forming a one-dimensional polymeric structure. The caesium atoms are coordinated with 8 oxygen atoms of the macrocycle and two nitrogen atoms of the dicyanoargentate groups, bonding to the cation on both sides of the crown-ether. It is the first structure of a dibenzo-24-crown-8 complex with a large metal cation such as Cs+.
