Chemistry and Pharmacology
The series of organotin halide complexes with tetraethyl ethylene- and propylene-diphosphonates RnSnX4-n,·L [n=0, X=Cl; n=1, R=Me, X=Cl, Br; n=1, R=Ph, X=Cl; n=2, R=Me, Et, Bu, X=Cl, Br; n=2, R=Ph, X=Cl; L=(EtO)2P(O)CH2CHR'P(O)(OEt)2, R'=H, Me] were synthesized and characterized by means of NMR and Mössbauer spectroscopy. The crystal structure of the complex of diphenyltin dichloride with propylenediphosphonate was determined. The complex consists of polymer chains with bridging bidentate ligands and an octahedral tin environment containing two types of phosphoryl fragments. All of the R2SnX2 adducts have trans-R2SnX4 geometries of tin coordination octahedra according to the quadrupole splitting values in the Mössbauer spectra. The 31P and 119Sn NMR studies at low temperatures revealed that RSnHal3 complexes in solution form isomers with different mutual orientations of phosphoryl ligands and organic groups in the coordination sphere. The diethyltin dichloride adduct with ethylene-diphosphonate appeared to be active against lung cancer NCI-H522 cells.
