The synthesis and study of new coordination compounds of some organotin(IV) chlorides with monomethyl glutarate are reported. The ligand molecule appears to be bound to the tin atom through the carboxylic oxygen. The results obtained from 1H, 13C, and 119Sn NMR, FT-IR and 119Sn Mossbauer spectra show that the complexes are pentacoordinated with the trigonal bipyramidal structure. Biological screening of organotin(IV) derivatives shows promising activity, especially for the triphenyltin complex exhibiting higher antifungal activity. In addition, the rest of the compounds also prove to be active against various fungi used.
