The crystal and spectroscopic characterization of three triorganotin derivatives, namely [Ph3SnO3SPh](n), [Me3SnO2P(OH)(Me)](n) and [Me3SnO2As(OH)(Ph)](n) are reported. In each case the structure consists of one- or three-dimensional, polymeric chains involving R3Sn (R = Me, Ph) moieties axially bridged through either benzenesulphonato, methylphosphonato or phenylarsonato ligands. The tin atoms in each case are in a trans-O2SnC3 trigonal bipyramidal environment. Hydrogen bonds ensure the compactness of the structures of the methylphosphonato and phenylarsonato derivatives.
