Abstract: Regular crystals of the title compound, (C2H8N)2[Sn(CH3)2Cl4], were obtained by reacting SnMe2Cl2 with (CH3)2NH·HCl in ethanol in a 1:1 ratio. The Sn atom lies on a center of symmetry and is six-coordinated. It has a distorted octahedral SnC2Cl4 environment with the Cl atoms in cis positions. The Cl atoms are connected to dimethylammonium cations through N-HCl hydrogen bonds, forming an infinite chain extending parallel to .
