Abstract

A new refinement of the isomeric pair of compounds Me3GeSnPh3 (I) and Ph3GeSnMe3 (II), using full sets of Friedel opposite reflections, is reported. The GeSn bond length (I: 2.602(1) and II: 2.611(1)Å) difference was found to be significantly smaller (Δ = 0.009 Å) than reported previously (0.053 Å). A solid solution of the isostructural pair I and II was obtained by recrystallizing equimolar quantities of the isomer compounds and the disordered crystal structure was elucidated. The solid solution contains I : II in 0.375: 0.625 ratio.
