When H 2 SeO 3 is allowed to react with SnMe 2 Cl 2 in EtOH at a 1:2 ratio colorless crystals of HSeO 3 SnMe 2 Cl are obtained which have been characterized by X-ray crystallography. The compound crystallizes in triclinic space group P1 with cell parameters a = 6.9693(5) Å, b = 7.5096(4) Å, c = 7.5222(5) Å, α = 71.503(4)°, β = 75.826(3)°, γ = 87.114(4)°, Z = 2, V = 361.82(4) Å 3 . The structure consists of [Me 3 SnO 3 SeH] n chains in which Me 3 Sn units are bridged by the selenite ligand; chains are further linked into sheets by O-H-Cl bonds. The key role of hydrogen bonds is worth emphasizing.
