K. M. K. Okoro et al. 1 Introduction Organotin compounds (OTCs) are organic derivatives of tin (Sn4+ ) and are characterized by the presence of covalent bonds between three carbon atoms and a tin atom. The organotins are designated as mono-, di-, tri-, or tetra-organotin compounds and have the general formula (n-C4 H9 ), Sn–X, where X is an anion or a group linked covalently through a hetero-atom (Dubey and Roy 2003; Okoro et al.

Methylcobalamin has been demethylated by SnCl2 in aqueous HCl solution, in the presence of an oxidizing agent (Fe3+ or Co3+ ), to form a monomethyltin species. Methyliodide (CH3 I) can also methylate tin species, whereas tin (IV) compounds do not so react. Chemical or biological processes are capable of methylating inorganic tin (II), Sn (IV), and methyltin derivatives under stimulated environmental conditions. Recently, methylation of butyltin species in sediments has been reported (Hoch 2001) and may arise from biological methylation of anthropogenic butyltins in the aquatic environment.
