The title compound, [Sn(CH3)3(C7H9O2)]n, forms an extended zigzag chain structure propagating parallel to . The Sn atom is in a slightly distorted trigonal-bipyramidal coordination environment with two carboxylate O atoms in the axial and the three methyl groups in equatorial sites. The cyclohexene ring has a distorted half-boat conformation. There is an intramolecular C-HO hydrogen bond.
