The reaction of 8-hydroxyquinoline, 2-methylquinolin-8-ol and stannic chloride yields the protonated 8-hydroxy-2-methylquinolinium species. In the title salt, (C10H10NO)[Sn(C9H6NO)Cl4], the SnIV cation is N,O-chelated by the quinolin-8-olate anion and is further coordinated by four Cl− anions in a distorted cis-SnNOCl4 octahedral geometry. In the crystal, the cation is linked to the anion by an O—H⋯O hydrogen bond.
