General description

Tin(II) chloride dehydrate converts conjugated dioxolones to aldehyde. It helps as a catalyst in multi-component condensation reaction from aromatic aldehydes, 2-aminopyridines and isonitriles which results in reasonable yield and reducing the reaction time.


Tin(II) chloride dehydrate may be used:
  • As a reducing agent for the determination of hydride forming species by AAS.
  • In the conversion of organomercurials into inorganic mercury determined using a flow injection-cold vapor atomic absorption spectrometry
  • In the determination of total mercury content, using atomic fluorescence spectroscopy and mercury speciation was performed using gas chromatography inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (GC-ICPMS).

A new oxidation method based on room-temperature ultrasonic irradiation (sonolysis) is proposed for conversion of organomercurials into inorganic mercury and subsequent determination by flow injection-cold vapor atomic absorption spectrometry. This advanced oxidation process eliminates the need for chemical oxidants, high

Reactions of the allyltin trichloride 45 generated from (4S)-4-benzyloxypent-2-enyl(tributyl)stannane 1 with imines prepared from glyoxylates proceed with useful levels of 1,5-stereocontrol in favour of (4E)-2,6-anti-2-(alkylamino)-6-benzyloxyhept-4-enoates 49. This stereoselectivity, controlled by the chirality of the stannane, dominates over any intrinsic stereochemical
