α-Stannyl vinyl sulfides were generally prepared by hydrostannylation of thioacetylenes catalyzed by Pd(PPh3)4. The regio- and stereochemistry of the products was determined unequivocally in three cases by X-ray crystallographic structure studies and in the others by 1H NMR spectroscopic analysis. The irreversible oxidation potentials of these compounds were determined in acetonitrile and dichloromethane by cyclic voltammetry. The oxidation potentials provide evidence for significant interaction between the C-Sn σ band and sulfur 3p lone pair orbital in cases with appropriate geometry.
