The synthesis and structural characterization of a silver(I) coordination polymer is reported. The structure contains a silver(I) ion coordinated by three sulfur donor atoms from three bridging bis(thiosemicarbazone) ligands in a trigonal planar coordination environment, generating a 2-D coordination polymer. The structure involves hydrogen bonds between the tetrafluoroborate counterion and the ligands and close Ag⋅⋅⋅Ag contacts to create an overall 3-D network.
