Eight α,ω-bis(triorganostannyltetrazolyl)alkanes, 1,n-(R 3 SnN 4 C) 2 (CH 2 ) n (n = 1,2,4-6; R = Me, Et, Pr i or Bu) have been synthesised by a cycloaddition method involving SnR 3 N 3 and 1,n-(NC) 2 (CH 2 ) n . The structure of the compound with R = Bu and n = 6 has been determined. It adopts a unique bilayer arrangement incorporating 40- and 58-membered rings which generate channels through the lattice array in all three dimensions.
