The structures of the tetranuclear silver(I), [Ag4(hpp)4], and
the dinuclear gold(II), [Au2(hpp)2Cl2], (hpp =
1,3,4,6,7,8-hexahydro-pyrimido[1,2-a]pyrimidinate) guani-
dinate-like bases are reported and show a silver­silver
distance of 2.8614(6) Ċ and a gold­gold distance of 2.4752(9)
Ċ, the shortest Au­Au bond heretofore reported.
Previous work in our laboratory involving gold-nitrogen
chemistry has led to the structural characterization of the
homogenous group (11) pyrazolates, [M(m-3,5-Ph2pz)]3, M =
CuI, AgI, AuI which includes the hexanuclear product [Au6(m-
3,5-Ph2pz)6].1,2 During recent studies of the chemistry of these
metal pyrazolates as materials for the synthesis and study of
