Two distinct types of peripheral binding site coordinate the eight Ag1 ions in the complex cation 1. The four crown ether units each coordinate one Ag1 atom. Each of the other four Ag1 ions binds in a meso pocket that is formed by a meso N atom and two S atoms attached to the adjacent Cβ positions. (Figure Presented.)
