The Sn atom in the title molecule, [Sn(C6H5)3(C16H10NO3)(C2H6O)], shows a trans-C3SnO2 trigonal bipyramidal coordination. Adjacent molecules are linked by O—H⋯O and O—H⋯N hydrogen bonds into a two-dimensional array parallel to (100). The ethanol ligand is disordered, with two sites of equal occupancy being resolved for the ethyl group.
Triphenyltin carboxylates are coordinately saturated, and do not generally afford adducts; for some unusual examples of adducts with oxygen-donor ligands, see: Ng & Kumar Das (1997 ▶). For reviews of the structural chemistry of organotin carboxylates, see: Tiekink (1991 ▶, 1994 ▶).
