Lewis Acid Nature of SnCl4 and n-Bu2SnCl2 Determined by Adduct Formation with 3-Methyl-1-Indanone
Lewis acid nature of SnCl4 and n-Bu2SnCl2 has been studied using 3-methyl-1-indanone. The equilibrium constant has been calculated for both the tin moieties. It has been found that Lewis acid character of SnCl4 is fourteen times greater than that of n-Bu2SnCl2.
