Reaction(s) of -guanosine monophosphate ( GMP) with di- and triorganotin(IV) chloride(s) led to formation of organotin(IV) derivatives of general formulae, [R2Sn( -GMP)·H2O]n and [(R′3Sn)2( -GMP)·H2O]n, where R = Me, n-Bu, and Ph; R′ = Me, i-Pr, n-Bu, and Ph; ( -GMP)2− = -guanosine monophosphate. An attempt has been made to prove the structures of the resulting derivatives on the basis of FT-IR, multinuclear 1H, 13C, and 119Sn NMR and 119Sn Mössbauer spectroscopic studies. These investigations suggest that both di- and triorganotin(IV)- -guanosine monophosphates are polymeric in which ( -GMP)2− is bonded through phosphate group resulting in a distorted trigonal bipyramidal geometry around tin. The ribose conformation in all of the derivatives is C3′-endo, except diphenyltin(IV) and tri-i-propyltin(IV) derivatives where it is C2′-endo. All of the studied derivatives exhibited mild-to-moderate anti-inflammatory activity (~15.64–20.63% inhibition) at 40 mg kg−1 dose and LD50 values > 400 mg kg−1 in albino rats.
