The title compound was synthesized as part of an effort to produce a more effective fungicide to combat Dutch Elm Disease (DED), which is caused by the fungus Ceratocystis ulmi. A full X-ray structural analysis of the 1:1 adduct has been carried out and the results are reported along with the Mössbauer data for the compound. The crystals are monoclinic, space group P21/a with a = 19.240(3) Å, b = 9.1463(24) Å, c = 19.3512(24) Å, β = 118.874(8)°, V = 2982.0(10) Å3, z = 4, and D calc = 1.427 Mg m-3. The final discrepancy factors are RF = 0.056 and Rw = 0.058 for 1915 significant reflections. The QS and IS values in the Mössbauer spectrum of the complex are 3.08 mm s-1 and 1.28 mm s-1, respectively. The 2.3-diphenylthiazolidin-4-one behaves as a monodentate ligand and coordinates to the tin through the oxygen atom. The complex exhibits a trigonal bipyramidal configuration with the three phenyl groups in equatorial positions and the chloride and ligand oxygen occupying the apical sites.
