The inclusion of a AgI ion by a hexanuclear platinum­(II) thiolate macrocycle in solution was demonstrated, and the inclusion structure was determined by X-ray crystallography. Unique host–guest intermetallic interactions driven by charge transfer were elucidated by optical absorption spectroscopy and theoretical calculations.
