      Abstract:

      New organotin(IV) complexes with empirical formula   Sn(SNNNS)R2, where SNNNS is the dianionic form of   2,6-diacetylpyridine Schiff bases of S-methyldithiocarbazate   (H2dapsme) or S-benzyldithiocarbazate   (H2dapsbz) and R = Ph or Me, have been prepared and   characterized by IR, UV-Vis, NMR and Mössbauer spectroscopic   techniques and conductance measurements. The molecular structures   of the Sn(dapsme)R2 (R = Ph and Me) have been   determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction techniques. Both   complexes have a distorted pentagonal-bipyramidal geometry in   which the tin is coordinated by a dinegatively charged   pentadentate chelating agent via pyridine nitrogen, two   azomethine nitrogens, and two thiolate sulfurs. The five donors   (N3S2) provided by the Schiff base occupy   the equatorial plane close to a pentagonal planar array while the   carbanion ligands occupy axial sites.
