The silver(I) and iodine(I) complexes of the 2-substituted pyridines 2-(diphenylmethyl)pyridine (1) and 2-(1,1-diphenylethyl)pyridine (2), along with their potential protonated side products, were synthesised to investigate the steric limitations of iodine(I) complex formation. The complexes were characterised by 1H and 1H–15N HMBC NMR, X-ray crystallography, and DFT calculations. The solid-state structures for the silver(I) and iodine(I) complexes were extensively compared to the literature and analysed by DFT to examine the influence of the sterically bulky pyridines and their anions.
