In the title compound, [Sn(C6H5)3(C10H13OS)]·0.17C6H6, the SnIV atom exhibits a slightly distorted tetra­hedral coordination geometry built up by four C atoms, which are the three ipso-C atoms of the phenyl rings and the α-C atom of the deprotonated γ-O-functionalized propyl phenyl sulfide. The benzene mol­ecule lies about a threefold rotoinversion axis.
