The crystalline complex {Ag3[Tris(2-pyridylmethyl)cyclotriguaiacylene]2}(PF6)3 has been synthesized and shown by X-ray crystallography to have a disordered three-dimensional cubic coordination network structure. The coordination network features a back-to-back stacking of the molecular host-type ligands into tetrahedral clusters, and the PF6- anions act as both intracavity guests and lattice-type guests. Disentangling the network disorder gives a 4-fold interpenetrating (10,3)-a net.
