Silver coordination polymers using the tetratopic BDF-H2 ligand (Eur. J. I. C.) and unexpected chloroarsine chemistry (P, S, Si and rel. El.). 

Silver coordination chemistry
Great work over the summer months by the group published in Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. exploring the coordination chemistry of the 9,9′-bis(4,5-diazafluorene) (BDF-H2) ligand towards Ag(I). Various 1D and 2D- coordination polymers are obtained and crystallographically characterized illustrating the rich chemistry of this unexplored ligand system.

Organoarsenic Chemistry
An unexpected, 1,3,4-phosphadiarssolan-1-ium salt was obtained and crystallographically characterized as an A-shaped chlorido adduct in the attempted condensation of trichloro arsanes and diphenyl (trimethylsilylmethyl) phosphane.
