Organotin(IV) coordination compounds have been the subject of interest for some time due to their properties, structural aspects and potential biomedical, environmental and commercial applications. A new series of coordination compounds with different organotin(IV) subunits as nodes and organic bridging ligands as spacers were prepared. The combination of organotin(IV) building blocks with O- and N-donor ligands resulted in the formation of new extended structures with 0D, 1D (an example is given in figure-1), 2D and 3D dimensionalities and interesting topologies. The influence of the nature of organotin(IV) nodes and the bridging ligands on the structural properties of the new systems obtained was investigated. All the synthesized compounds have been characterized by elemental analysis, standard spectroscopic techniques (FTIR, UV-Vis-NIR, NMR), thermal analysis, as well as by single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction. The ligands, metal precursors and their corresponding organotin(IV) complexes have also been screened for antimicrobial activities.
