Tin(II/IV) phosphate was prepared by various synthetic methods. The different methods resulted in tin phosphate with different properties, i.e., different crystalline form and behaviour during thermal treatment. The prepared materials have 3 mol water of crystallisation, which they lose in different ways. Total mass loss was between 20 and 30%. This could be connected with water loss, going generally in two steps in parallel with endothermic processes. At the end of thermal treatment, tin pyrophosphate is obtained, irrespective of the method of preparation used.
