The synthesis, single crystal X-ray diffraction (SC-XRD) characterization and Hirshfeld topology analysis of molecular packing of the coordination polymer [Ag2L(H2O)2(ClO4)2]n, where L = 2,4,6-trimorpholino-1,3,5-triazine were discussed. The asymmetric unit comprises one Ag2L(H2O)2(ClO4)2 unit. The coordination geometries around the two silver atoms are different where Ag(1) is hexa-coordinated with one L, two bridged water, and two bridged perchlorate augmented with one strong Ag-O interaction from the morpholine O-atom of another ligand (L) unit. The coordination environment is more like to a distorted octahedral arrangement according to the criteria of continuous shape measurements. Ag(2) is coordinated to one L, one terminal water and one terminal perchlorate leading to a distorted trigonal planar arrangement around Ag(2). Hirshfeld analysis of molecular packing indicated that the most important intermolecular contacts affect the molecular packing of the studied complex are the H...H and the O...H interactions. Atoms in molecules (AIM) and natural bond orbital (NBO) analyses were used to describe the strength and nature of the Ag-O and Ag-N interactions. View Full-Text
