Abstract: The crystal structure of the title salt, (C25H22P)[Sn(C6H5)3Cl2] or (PhCH2PPh3)[SnPh3Cl2], consists of [PhCH2PPh3]+ cations and [SnPh3Cl2]- anions in which the SnIV atom is linked to two Cl atoms and three phenyl groups in a trigonal-bipyramidal geometry, with the Cl atoms in trans positions. The cation adopts a tetrahedral geometry. In the crystal, the cations and the anions are connected by C-H...Cl hydrogen bonds, leading to an infinite chain propagating along the c direction.
