## Abstract

Mononuclear, binuclear and trinuclear silver(I) complexes were obtained unexpectedly while probing the reactivity of diphosphazane ligands of the type $X_2PN(Pr^i)PXY$ towards the ruthenium-based precursor $Ru(bipy)_2Cl_2 · 2H_2O$, in the presence of a silver salt as a chloride scavenger. Subsequently, the reactions of $AgX [X = Cl, NO_3 or CF_3SO_3]$ with $Ph_2PN(R)PPh(Y) [R = H, Y = Ph; R = Pr^i, Y = Ph or OC_6H_3Me_2-2, 6]$ in a 1:1 or 1:2 molar ratio have been investigated. Mononuclear or binuclear Ag(I) complexes containing either chelating or bridging diphosphazane ligands are obtained. Trinuclear silver(I) complexes are accessible by the treatment of diphosphazane ligands, $Ph_2PN(R)PPh_2 [R = H, Pr^i]$ with AgCl using piperidine as the solvent. In the presence of a suitable chloride donor species, the mononuclear and binuclear complexes of $Ph_2PN(Pr^i)PPh_2$ are transformed slowly to the trinuclear complex $[Ag_3(\mu-Cl)_2{Ph_2PN(Pr^i)PPh_2}_3]X$, over a period 20 h. The structures of representative complexes have been confirmed by X-ray crystallography and the salient structural features are discussed.
