The solution nuclear magnetic resonence of methyltin(IV)-cuferronates and a unique dismutation reaction and preorganization process was analyzed. The mechanism of the methyl-migrational process was proposed on the basis of solvent induced conformational equilibrium. Kinetic experiments in the NMR was carried out to prove the deduction concerning the reaction mechanism. It was observed that stronger lewis base solvents induced dismutation at markedly faster rates than methanol.
