The tetradentate -N2O2 ligands, [N,N′-(1,2-ethylenebis(salicylaldamine)] (SaleanH4 (1), [N,N′-(1,3-propylene)bis(salicylaldamine)](SalpanH4 (2)and [N,N′-(1,2-phenylenebis(salicylaldamine)] (SalophanH4) 3, were used to prepare Sn(II) complexes that are monomeric (SaleanH2Sn (7), SalpanH2Sn (8)) and dimeric ([SalophanH2Sn]2) (9)). The structure of 7 was determined by single-crystal X-ray crystallography: orthorhombic, space pbcn with a = 19.849(4), b = 10.791(3), c = 18.559(5) A ̊ and Z = 8. Compounds 8 and 9 undergo transmetallation reactions with three equivalents of AlMe3 to produce the trimetallic derivatives, SalpanAlMe(Alme2)2 (10) and SalophanAlMe(AlMe2)2 (11).
