Epub 2010 Jan 28.The reaction of 1,1'-ferrocenedicarboxylic acid (LH(2)) with bis(triphenyltin) oxide afforded a molecular heterobimetallic compound [(Ph(3)Sn)(2)L]. In the latter the two carboxylate units of [L](2-) are involved in an anisobidentate chelating coordination mode to two triphenyl tin units. The reaction of LH(2) with trimethyltin hydroxide or bis(tri-n-butyltin) oxide afforded 2D-coordination polymers [(Me(3)Sn)(2)L](n) and [(n-Bu(3)Sn)(2)L](n) which are formed as a result of anisobidentate bridging coordination action of the two carboxylate units of [L](2-).
