Tin chemistry has been the subject of much research effort in the last few years. Elemental tin possesses two allotropic modifications, forms a wide variety of intermetallic phases and inorganic compounds, and has an extensive organometallic chemistry. Basic studies in organotin chemistry are stimulated by the obvious close analogies and interesting differences with the even more extensive chemistry of the cognate organosilicon compounds, and with the vast body of organic chemistry, and also by the success with which a large number of modern physical techniques can be applied to organotin compounds.
