Abstract

Synthesis, structural, and spectroscopic characterization and DFT investigation of a series of light- and air-stable silver(I) pyrazolylmethylpyridine complexes is reported. The resulting polycrystalline cubic-phase Ag films contain negligible amounts of extraneous contamination. The results of the wear measurements indicate a significant reduction in wear (∼ 88%) at optimized Ag complex concentrations. Enhanced wear performance is attributed to facile shearing of Ag metal deposited in the contact region, which results from thermolysis of the silver complex
