Abstract

The complete molecule of the title compound, [Sn(C4H9)2(C5H10NOS2)2], is generated by a crystallographic mirror plane, with the SnIV atom and the two inner methylene C atoms of the butyl ligands lying on the mirror plane; statistical disorder is noted in the two terminal ethyl groups, which deviate from mirror symmetry. The dithiocarbamate ligand coordinates to the metal atom in an asymmetric mode with the resulting C2S4 donor set defining a skew trapezoidal bipyramidal geometry; the n-butyl groups are disposed to lie over the longer Sn - S bonds. Supramolecular chains aligned along the a-axis direction and sustained by methylene-C - H⋯S(weakly coordinating) interactions feature in the molecular packing. A Hirshfeld surface analysis reveals the dominance of H⋯H contacts in the crystal.
