Inorg Chem. 2012 Jul 2;51(13):7306-16. doi: 10.1021/ic3006713. Epub 2012 Jun 11.A series of cationic cryptand complexes of tin(II), [Cryptand[2.2.2]SnX][SnX(3)] (10, X = Cl; 11, X = Br; 12, X = I) and [Cryptand[2.2.2]Sn][OTf](2) (13), were synthesized by the addition of cryptand[2.2.2] to a solution of either tin(II) chloride, iodide, or trifluoromethanesulfonate. The complexes could also be synthesized by the addition of the appropriate trimethylsilyl halide (or pseudohalide) reagent to a solution of tin(II) chloride and cryptand[2. Read More
