Some chiral triphenyltin complexes (1-4) derived from triarylgermyl(substituted)-propenoic acids (I-D) have been prepared. They were characterized by IR, mass spectrometry and multinuclear (H-1, C-13, Sn-119) NMR spectroscopic techniques and their chirality was established on the basis of H-1 NMR data and specific rotation values. X-Ray structure of the synthesized ligand, I-D3, (m-CH3C6H4)(3)GeCH(C6H5)CH2COOH, depicts chiral and prochiral carbons explicitly and described tetrahedral geometry around the germanium atom.
