Recrystallization of [BrSn(S(2)CNEt(2))(2)(OC(CH3)CHCOCH3)] 1, formed
from the reaction of Br2Sn(S(2)CNEt(2))(2) with Na(CH3COCHCOCH3) in 1:
1 molar ratio yields [(Et(2)NCS(2))(2)Sn(O-C(CH3)=C(S)-C(O)-CH3)] 2, a
unique derivative, which was characterized by X-ray crystallography.
The geometry around tin(IV) is distorted octahedral, with the average
Sn-S distance [2.548(4)Angstrom] of the chelated dithiocarbamate being
longer than the Sn-S distance [2.388(5)Angstrom] of the five-membered
chelating > Sn(O-C(CH3)=C(S)-C(O)-CH3) ligand moiety.
