      Abstract: The P,P-chelated stannylene   [(i-Pr2P)2N]2Sn takes up 2 equiv. of carbon dioxide (CO2) to form   an unusual product in which CO2 binds to the Sn and P atoms, thus   forming a six-membered ring complex. Gentle heating of the solid   product releases CO2, indicating that CO2 is bound as an adduct   to the main-group complex. The groups bound to the CO2 fragment   are not particularly sterically crowded or highly acidic, thus   indicating that "frustrated" Lewis acid-base pairs are not   required in the binding of CO2 to main-group elements.
