SnCl4-, SnCl5-- and SnCl62--containing compounds have been synthesized, and their Mossbauer and infrared spectroscopic studies undertaken. The environment around the tin centre is octahedral in all compounds. Infrared and Mossbauer spectroscopies show that the thiocyanate anion acts as a N-donor ligand. The X-ray structure determination of [C6H5COCH2NH3](2)[SnCl6] has also been reported; this structure consists of octahedral SnCl62- anions connected together into layers via hydrogen bonds between the chlorine and the hydrogen atoms of the NH3+ groups of the C6H5COCH2NH3+ cations.
