The title compound was synthesized by a reactive salt reaction at 773 K over a period of 5 d. It has a one-dimensional chain structure consisting of K+ cations and one-dimensional [Ag2Sn2Se6]2- anions. The chain is constructed by edge-sharing bitetrahedral [Sn2Se6] units connected in a 1:2 ratio via linear Ag+ ions.
