Chiral bis(amino alcohol) silver complex derived from (+)-camphor

A chiral silver(I) complex was synthesized from the reaction of a chiral amino alcohol derived from (+)-camphor and silver nitrate, with the structure unambiguously disclosed by X-ray analysis and 2-D-NMR experiments. In this complex, the amino alcohol molecule is a monodentate ligand through the amino nitrogen, requiring two amino alcohol units which are coordinated to the silver and located orthogonally through the NH–Ag–NH axis.
