The title complex, [Ag(C11H8N2O)]+ n.n(BF4)-, contains polymeric [silver(di-2-pyridyl ketone)]+n zigzag chains, counterbalanced by BF-4 anions. The Ag atoms reside on inversion centers, the di-2-pyridyl ketone ligands lie with their carbonyl groups along crystallographic twofold axes, and the BF-4 ions also reside on inversion centers (and are disordered). The AgN2O2 moiety is precisely planar, with Ag-N 2.180 (3) and Ag-O 2.552 (1) Å, and N-Ag-O 69.35 (9)o.
