Abstract

The biological activities of tin-containing materials derived from numerous saccharides and polysaccharides is discussed. Emphasis is placed on bacterial results. In general, inhibition is only secondarily dependent on the percentage of organostannane incorporation. Inhibition follows the general inhibition order for alkyl-substitution where general activity decreases as the length of the alkyl chain increases. Finally, general activity is dependent on the nature of the saccharide.
