Syntheses and Structural Characterization of Triorganotin Derivatives of 3-Mercapto-4-methyl-4H-1,2,4-triazol: X-ray Crystal Structures of One-dimensional Zigzag Polymeric chain of Me3Sn[SC3H4N3] and Ph3Sn[SC3H4N3]

The triorganotin derivatives of 3-mercapto-4-methyl-4H-1,2,4-triazol, R3Sn[SC3H4N3] (R = Me 2, n-Bu 3, Ph 4, PhCH2 5), have been synthesized and characterized by IR and NMR spectroscopy. Among them, complexes 2 and 4 were also characterized by X-ray crystallography diffraction analyses, which revealed that both 2 and 4 show one-dimensional zigzag polymeric chain structure in which the geometries of tin atoms are both trigonal bipyramid with the axial positions occupied by sulfur and nitrogen atoms.
