(1,4,7-Trithiacyclononane) silver trifluoromethanesulfonate crystallizes in a tetrameric form from nitromethane, to give the title compound, [Ag4(C6H12S3)4](CF3 SO3)4·2CH3NO2. The complex cation consists of four [AgL]+ units (L is 1,4,7-trithiacyclononane), with four Ag-S-Ag bridges forming a cyclic tetramer. The almost planar Ag4S4 ring takes an octagonal form.
