In the crystal structures of (4-nitrophenylsulfanylmethyl)triphenylstannane, [Sn(C6H5)(3) (C7H6NO2S)], (I), and (4-nitrophenylsulfonylmethyl)triphenylstannane, [Sn(C6H5)(3) (C7H6NO4S)], (II), the molecules are linked by paired C-H...O hydrogen bonds into centrosymmetric dimers which combine to form sheets. In (I), two such dimers form to give R-2(2) (10) and R-2(2) (24) rings. In (II), similar dimers form, here with R-2(2) (10) and R-2(2) (18) rings, but with an additional dimer due to the presence of the sulfone group, giving R-2(2) (10) rings. In both structures, C-H...pi interactions lead to a doubling of the width of the sheets.
Formula: [Sn(C6H5)3(C7H6NO2S)] and [Sn(C6H5)3(C7H6NO4S)]
