-Ethane-1,2-diylbis(diphenylphosphine oxide)-2O:O′-bis[dibenzyldichlorotin(IV)]: a centrosymmetric complex containing trigonal-bipyramidal tin(IV), linked into chains of rings by C—H⃛(arene) hydrogen bonds
Abstract:The title compound, [Sn2Cl4(C7H7)4(C26H24O2P2)], (I), was isolated from the reaction of 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane with dibenzyltin(IV) dichloride in the presence of air. The molecules of (I) lie across centres of inversion in space group C2/c and contain five-coordinate Sn atoms. The molecules are linked into chains of rings by a single C—H…(arene) hydrogen bond.
