Abstract: The crystal structure of catena-poly[[di-n-butyltin(IV)]--glutarato], [Sn(C4H9)2(C5H6O4)], is composed of polymeric chains formed by coordination of glutarate, through both ends, to di-n-butyltin. The geometry around the hexacoordinated Sn atom is highly distorted octahedral, and may best be described as based on a skew-trapezoidal planar geometry. The symmetry-related glutarate ligands are asymmetrically coordinated to the Sn atoms, with Sn-O distances of 2.138 (2) and 2.483 (2) Å. The Sn-C distance involving the n-butyl group is 2.124 (3) Å.
