Abstract

The title compound, bis(2,4-dinitrobenzoato)tetrabutyldistannoxane(IV), was obtained from the reaction of di-n-butyltin(IV) oxide with 2,4-dinitrobenzoic acid. It crystallizes out as the usual dicarboxylatotetrabutyldistannoxane(IV) dimer. In the monoclinic system P21/c, a = 12.391(3) Å, b = 19.937(5) Å, c = 15.026(4) Å, α = γ = 90°, β = 102.857(2)°, V = 3618.95(16) Å3 and Z = 2. A crystal structure determination of the title compound reveals the presence of a centrosymmetric planar Sn2O2, with two different environments for tin atoms and two distinct carboxylate groups. Two of the carboxylate groups are bonded to the exocyclic tin atom in a bidentate bridging manner and the remaining two carboxylate groups are bonded to the tin atom in a monodentate manner. As a result, both the tin atoms moieties in the complex are five coordinate and exhibit trigonal bipyramid geometry.
