A simple cationic Ag(I)-1,3-enyne complex was synthesized and characterized. In the solid state, single crystal X-ray crystallography showed the Ag(I) centre bonded in an asymmetric manner exclusively to the alkyne portion of the substrate. NMR spectroscopy studies showed this structure is maintained in solution over the temperature range of -90 to +60 °C.
