Synthesis of organotin compounds from organomercury compounds and stannous salts in inert solvents

  • 17 Accesses

Summary

  1. 1.

    An investigation is described of the reaction of organomercury compounds with stannous salts in an inert solvent, i.e., a solvent which does not contain a mobile hydrogen atom. It was shown that under these conditions no side reaction occurs with formation of (RO)2SnX2, which is formed when acetone or alcohol is used as solvent.

  2. 2.

    Reaction between dipropenylmercury and stannous bromide gave dipropenyltin dibromide, whereas in the corresponding reaction of diisopropenylmercury we isolated diisopropenyltin dibromide, tetraisopropenyltin and isopropenylmercury bromide.

  3. 3.

    The reactions of diphenylmercury, di-p- and di-o-tolylmercurys, di-1-naphthylmercury, and diethylmercury with stannous chloride, and also with stannous bromide in the case of diphenylmercury, gave the normal products.
