Abstract: The title compound, [Sn(C6H5)3(C9H10NS2)], has two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit and each features a tetrahedrally coordinated SnIV atom as the dithiocarbamate ligand coordinates in a monodentate fashion. As the non-coordinating thione S atom is proximate to the Sn atom [Sn...S(thione) = 3.1477 (6) and 2.9970 (5) Å for the independent molecules], distortions from the ideal geometry are evident [the widest angle being 120.48 (5)°]. The most notable feature of the crystal packing is the formation of C-H...[pi] interactions that lead to the formation of supramolecular layers parallel to (\\overline{3}2\\overline{1}).
