Six trifunctional triorganotin tetrazoles, (R3SnN4CCH2CH2)3C(NO 2) and 1,3,5-(R3SnN4C)3C6H3(R = Me, Et or Bu), have been synthesised by a cycloaddition route from SnR3(N3) and either (NCCH2CH2)3C(NO2) or 1,3,5-(NC)3C6H3 as dipblarophile. The compounds have been characterised by 1H, 13C, 119Sn NMR and 119Mössbauer spectroscopies, while the crystal structures of the tributyltin examples of each series reveal they adopt layered supramolecular arrays.
