Abstract: In the title polymeric coordination compound, [Sn(CH3)3(C20H12O4P)]n, the Sn atom exhibits a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal coordination geometry with the phosphate O atoms of the 1,1'-binaphthyl-2,2'-diyl phosphonate ligands in axial positions and equatorial sites occupied by the three methyl groups. Adjacent Sn atoms are bridged by coordination to the two O atoms of each 1,1'-binaphthyl-2,2'-diyl phosphonate ligand, forming a one-dimensional chain structure parallel to the b axis.
