Three NNN type ligands derived from 2,6-dichloropyridine, pyrazol and 3,5-dimethylpyrazole and their silver complexes were prepared in methanol media. The complex structures were characterized using IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and elemental analysis. X-ray studies showed the complexes to be dimeric in structure. The two nitrogen atoms of the ligand coordinated the first Ag(I) ion whereas the second Ag(I) ion was coordinated by the third nitrogen donor. The nitrate structure was not ionic in a done of its oxygen atoms coordinated an Ag(I) ion. The Ag(I) ion was seen to be situated in a deformed tetrahedral coordination sphere. Thermogravimetric studies showed the complexes to decompose similar to explosive material. The decomposition temperature was observed to increase with increasing hydrogen atoms in the structure.
