Chiral tin(IV) derivatives with two or three chiral centers adjacent to the metal (-)-Ment2SnMe2, (-)-Ment2SnPh2, (-)-Ment3SnCl, (-)-Ment3SnH; (-)-Ment = (1R,2S,5R)-1-chloro-5-methyl-2-isopropylcyclohexane, R2Sn[CH(Me)(n-Hex)]2 (R = Bu or Ph) have been prepared either by the coupling of menthylmagnesium chloride with tin halides or by the reaction of lithium stannates with optically active (2-octyl)tosylate. The stereospecificity of both processes was remarkably high, leading to new optically pure organotin reagents which have been fully characterized.
