The tetra­nuclear title compound, [Sn4(CH3)8(C2H5O)2O2(C3H4N3S)2], lies about a center of inversion; the mol­ecule features a three-rung-staircase Sn4O4 core in which two SnIV atoms are bridged by the 4-methyl-5-sulfanyl­idene-4,5-dihydro-1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-ide group. The negatively charged N atom of the group binds to the terminal SnIV atom at a shorter distance [Sn—N = 2.240 (3) Å] compared with the neutral N atom that binds to the central SnIV atom [Sn← N = 2.641 (3) Å]. The terminal SnIV atom is five-coordinate in a cis-C2SnNO2 trigonal–bipyramidal geometry [C—Sn—C = 127.5 (2)°], whereas the central SnIV atom is six-coordinate in a C2SnNO3 skew-trazepoidal bipyramidal geometry [C—Sn—C = 145.0 (2)°].

Comment top

The title compound (Scheme I, Fig. 1), a distannoxane, was the unexpected product from an attempt at synthesizing a dimethyltin 4-methyl-4H-1,2,4-triazol-3-thiolate that possesses a tin-sulfur linkage. In the reaction of diorganotin oxides with organic acids (particularly carboxylic acids), tetranuclear distannoxanes are sometimes formed; these compounds have four organic groups. In the present reaction, two of the four organic groups are replaced by ethoxide groups.

Tetranuclear Sn4O2(CH3)8(C2H5O)2(C3H4N3S)2 lies about a center-of-inversion; the molecule features a three-rung-staircase Sn4O4 core in which two Sn atoms are bridged by the C3H4N3S triazolate group. The negatively-charged N atom of the group binds to the terminal Sn atom at a shorter distance [Sn–N 2.240 (3) Å] compared with the neutral N atom that binds to the central Sn atom [SnN 2.641 (3) Å]. The terminal Sn atom is five-coordinate in a cis-C3SnNO trigonal bipyramid whereas the central Sn atom is six-coordinate in a C2SnNO3 skew-trazepoidal bipyramidal geometry.

Experimental top

Dimethyltin diisothiocyanate (1 mmol), 4-methyl-4H-1,2,4-triazole-3-thiol (1 mmol) and 1,10-phenanthroline (1 mmol) were loaded into a convection tube; several drops of triethylamine were added. The tube was filled with dry ethanol and kept at 333 K. Colorless crystals were collected from the side arm after several days.

Refinement top

Carbon-bound H-atoms were placed in calculated positions [C—H 0.95 to 0.98 Å, Uiso(H) 1.2 to 1.5Ueq(C)] and were included in the refinement in the riding model approximation.
