Abstract: In the title complex, [Sn2(CH3)4(C8H6N2O4)2(CH4O)2], each SnIV ion exists in a distorted pentagonal-bipyramidal coordination environment, coordinated by three O atoms and one N atom from the pyruvic acid 2-furoic acid hydrazone ligands, one O atom from a methanol molecule and two axial C atoms from trans methyl groups, thus forming a dimeric molecule, which has crystallographic symmetry. In the dimeric structure there are also intramolecular hydrogen bonds, which contribute to the crystal stability and compactness.
