Abstract: The title compound, [Sn(C4H9)2(C9H10NS2)2], features a tetrahedrally coordinated SnIV atom; the dithiocarbamate ligands coordinate in a monodentate fashion, accompanied by two n-butyl chains. The non-coordinating thione S atoms are each proximate to the SnIV atom [3.0136 (7) and 2.9865 (8) Å], giving rise to distortions from the ideal geometry as evident in the wide C-Sn-C bond angle of 139.06 (12) °. In the crystal, C-H...S interactions lead to the formation of a linear supramolecular chain along the b axis. The chains are aligned into layers by C-H...[pi] interactions, and the layers stack along [001]. One of the ethyl groups is statistically disordered over two sets of sites.
