Abstract: The title compound, [Sn(C6H5)2Cl2(CH4N2S)2], has been obtained from the reaction between Sn(C6H5)2Cl2 and SC(NH2)2. The asymmetric unit consists of one half of the molecular unit, the remainder generated by a twofold rotation axis located along the Cl-Sn-Cl bonds. The SnIV atom is coordinated by two phenyl groups, two Cl atoms and two thiourea ligands in an all trans octahedral C2Cl2S2 environment. Individual molecules are connected through N-H...Cl hydrogen bonds, leading to a three-dimensional network structure. Intramolecular N-H...Cl hydrogen bonds are also present.
