The new silver(I) complexe [Ag_2(opsp)_2](NO_3)_2 (1) was synthesized by the self-assembly of AgX (X = NO_3^-) with the versatile multidentate ligand opsp (opsp = 2-[(o-pyridyl)-sulfanylmethyl]- pyrimidine). X-ray single-crystal diffraction analyses show that 1 is dinuclear molecule. In 1, 1 opsp ligand acts in a bidentate mode with 2 nitrogen atoms from a pyridine ring and a pyrimidine ring coordinating to 2 Ag(I) atoms, and the Ag(I) center is 2-coordinated by 2 nitrogen atoms showing linear coordination geometry.
