Molecular orbital calculations were carried out on AgIion pair, AgI4, and the tetrameric units AgIL4 where L represents the monodentate nitrogen-containing ligands piperidine or morpholine or the bidentate piperazine. The purpose of these calculations was to estimate 1 the effects of bonding among the silver, nitrogen, and iodide, and 2 the influence of the electronic effects in determining the structure preferred by these complexes. The calculations show that the actual structures of the complexes are dependent on ligand shape and size, hydrogen bonding tendencies, and to some extent on the ionic character of the iodide ion. No specific electronic effects involving the silver ion and its coordinated ligand are indicated by these calculations. Author
