Abstract:

Organotin(IV) compounds have gained significant interest in both the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. Tin (IV) form stable complexes with a unique structure and physicochemical properties that are used in organic synthesis as heat stabilizers and catalysts, in drug development as biologically active agents and in other areas. This review concentrates on recent progress in the classical and convenient synthesis procedure and biological activities as antitumoral and antimicrobial agents.
