The structure of the title compound, [Sn2Br1.97Cl4.03(OH)2(H2O)2]·2C3H6O, contains two hexa­coordinated Sn atoms bridged symmetrically by two hydroxide groups, with an inversion center in the middle of the planar Sn2O2 ring, half of the mol­ecule being generated by inversion symmetry. The other sites of the distorted octa­hedral coordination geometry are occupied by halide atoms and water mol­ecules. The structure exhibits substitutional disorder of the halide atoms bonded to the Sn atom, with 0.672 (4) occupancy for Cl and 0.328 (4) for Br for each halide position. The compound crystallizes with two acetone mol­ecules, which are involved in intra- and inter­molecular O—H...O contacts. The water mol­ecules coordinated to the Sn atoms are also involved in O—H...O and O—H...X contacts, leading to a polymeric array along the a axis.

Comment top

The title compound forms a dimeric structure with two aquatrihalidotin(IV) fragments bridged symmetrically by two hydroxo groups (Figure 1). Half of the molecule is generated by symmetry due to the presence of the inversion center in the middle of the Sn2O2 ring. This ring is planar and describes a rhomb with the endocyclic angles at O larger than those at the Sn atoms [Sn1—O1—Sn1i = 109.2 (2)°, O1—Sn1—O1i = 70.8 (2)°; symmetry code: (i) = -x + 1, -y + 1, -z + 1]. The tin atoms are hexacoordinated with the two hydroxo, three halides and one water molecule occupying the distorted octahedral positions around the metal centre. The tin atoms are out of the best plane described by O1/O1i/X1/X2 (X = Cl/Br) with 0.174 Å towards X3.

The compound exhibits substitutional disorder of the halide atoms bonded to the Sn with 0.672 occupancy for Cl and 0.328 for Br for each halide position.

The compound crystallizes with two acetone molecules, which establish two strong hydrogen bonds, one with the hydroxo group and one with the water from a neighboring dimer (Table 1). The water molecules are also involved in hydrogen bond type interactions with halide atoms, a strong one inside the dimeric unit and one intermolecular with a halide from another dimer (Table 1). The intramolecular interactions strengthen the dimeric unit and the intermolecular ones give rise to a polymer-like supramolecular arrangement along the a axis (Figure 2), with no further interactions between different chains (Figure 3).

Experimental top

The title compound was obtained as a by-product after the work up of the crude reaction mixture obtained by reacting [2,6-(Me)2C6H3]MgBr and SnCl4.

Refinement top

The hydrogen atoms of the methyl groups were placed in calculated positions and were allowed to rotate but not to tip, with C—H = 0.96 Å and with Uiso(H) = 1.5Ueq(C). The three halide atoms were refined as substitutional disorder between chlorine and bromine, with 0.672 occupancy for Cl and 0.328 occupancy for Br for each position. Hydrogen atoms from the water molecule and hydroxyl group were found from a difference map and refined with a restrained O—H distance of 0.88 (5) Å,0.89 (9) Å and 0.79 (7) Å, with Uiso(H) = (1.5, 3.0, and 1.2)Ueq(O), respectively.

Special details top

Geometry. All e.s.d.'s (except the e.s.d. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of e.s.d.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between e.s.d.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell e.s.d.'s is used for estimating e.s.d.'s involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
