Abstract: Compared to the previous studies [Ng (1997). Acta Cryst. C53, 56-58; Yin et al. (2005). Huaxue Shiji, 27, 295-296], the redetermined structure of the title compound, [Sn(C7H7)3Cl], exhibits a doubled c unit-cell parameter. There are two molecules in the asymmetric unit, with both Sn and both Cl atoms having 3 site symmetry. The Sn atoms have distorted SnClC3 tetrahedral geometries and the molecules interact by way of short SnCl bridges [SnCl = 3.418 (2) and 3.475 (2) Å], thereby forming chains propagating in c.
