The binuclear centrosymmetric title compound, [Sn2(C3H7O)6Cl2(C3H8O)2], exhibits an edge-shared double octahedral exhibits an edge-shared octahedral structure, which is distorted owing to the presence of asymmetric intramolecular hydrogen bonds between the axially coordinated isopropanol and isopropoxide ligands. The H atom of the hydroxy group is located nearer to an isopropoxy group with the longest Sn—O bond [2.1789 (17) Å].
