Applications

Tin(IV) chloride is a precursor to prepare organotin compounds such as tetralkyltin and dialkyldichlorotin(IV), which find applications as catalysts and polymer stabilizers. As a Lewis acid catalyst, it is used in Fridel-Crafts reactions for alkylation and cyclization. It is involved in the selective nitration of aromatic compounds in the presence of fuming nitric acid. Furthermore, it is used to prepare tin(IV) oxide coating by sol-gel process.

Notes

Air and moisture sensitive. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with alkyl nitrates, ethylene oxide, potassium and humid air. Reacts violently with water.
