The structural features of the title complex, [SnCl2(C5H10NS2)2], are
significantly different to those of the complexes Me2Sn(S2CNR2)2 that
have been structurally characterized so far. In the title complex the
geometry around the Sn atom is cis-octahedral with a Cl-Sn-Cl angle of
91.85 (3)-degrees and an average Sn-Cl bond length of 2.404 (7) angst
rom. Both dithiocarbamato groups behave as bidentate chelating ligands
with an average Sn-S bond length of 2.539 (6) angstrom and an average
S-Sn-S bond angle of 71.01 (2)-degrees.
