The six-coordinate SnIV atom in the title compound, [Sn(C7H6F)2Cl2(C10H8N2)], shows a trans-C2SnN2Cl2 octahedral coordination [C—Sn—C = 174.81 (10) and 176.71 (9)° in the two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit]; the Cl atoms are cis to each other as are the N atoms of the chelating N-heterocycle.
