Cover illustration: Fortuitous slow hydrolysis of the relatively simple molecular compound tBu2Sn(OMe)2 gives a crystalline salt in which SnIV plays different structural roles in the trinuclear [tBu6Sn3(OMe)3O]+ cation and the dinuclear [tBu2Sn2(OMe)7]- anion, with doubly-bridging methoxy and triply-bridging oxo ligands; the coordination is trigonal bipyramidal in each case.
