The crystal structures of a series of Ag(I) complexes with 1,3-bis(imidazol-1-ylmethyl)-5-methylbenzene (L) and the counterions BF4 (1), PF6 (2), ClO4 (3), and CF3SO3 (4) were analysed to determine the effect of the latter on their formation. All resulting compounds crystallise in the non-centrosymmetric space group Cc of a monoclinic system and show the formation of cationic, polymeric 1D Ag(I) complexes. SCXRD analyses revealed that compounds 13 are isostructural, though 1 shows opposite handedness compared to 2 and 3, resulting in an inversed packing arrangement. The presence of the larger, elongated triflate counterion in 4 leads to a different ligand conformation, as well as different arrangements of the ligand in the cationic chain, and simultaneously results in a packing that exhibits fewer similarities with the remaining three compounds.
