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.

Partial Text

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 ▶).
