      Abstract: In an attempt to perform a simple   anion-exchange reaction on a pincer-carbene-ligated Ni complex   using AgNO3, the authors instead obtained an unexpected   three-dimensional (3D) Ag7 cluster contg. a [Ag6] core in a   twisted-bowtie geometry. The reverse-transmetalation reaction by   which the carbene is transferred from Ni to Ag is virtually   unprecedented. The CNC pincer-carbene ligands exhibit unusual   bridging modes of ligand bonding for all three donor atoms.   Another unique feature is that the final structure exhibits a   3-dimensional structure brought about by the connection of   two-dimensional layers of the [Ag6] core via a seventh Ag ion.   [on SciFinder(R)]
