Nanorods of the three-dimensional coordination polymer, [Ag2(μ 2-py-4-c)2] n (1) [py-4-c = pyridine-4-carboxylate], have been synthesized by sonochemical process. The single-crystal X-ray data of compound 1 shows the formation of a 3D interpenetrated silver(I) coordination polymer, which has agostic interactions around the silver(I) ions and two types of AgI ions with O2NAg1···O2H, N2 Ag2···O2H2 coordination spheres. Silver nanoparticles were fabricated from thermal decomposition of 1 nanorods. These nanostructures were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The thermal stability of 1 was studied by thermo gravimetric (TG) and differential thermal (DT) analysis.
