The generous financial assistance of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Universal Oil Products and the Canadian Space Agency is deeply appreciated. TJ expresses her gratitude to the University of Toronto for a graduate scholarship held during the course of this work. Special thanks go to Dr. David Young for the synthesis and crystallization of the (TMA)4Sn2S6 dimer. The technical assistance of Dr. Alan Lough (SCXRD) and Nick Plavac (NMR) proved to be most valuable. Stimulating discussions with Mr. Holmes Ahari, Ms. Carol Bowes, Dr. Patricia Enzel, and Dr. Alex Kuperman are gratefully acknowledged.

Nanoporous R-SnS-n materials e.g. (Et4N)2Sn3S7, have been sythesized and characterized. The crystal structures of two molecular tin(IV) sulfide species that are thought to be important in the formation of these materials are reported. Both contain the dimer (Sn2S6)4⊖, which can be combined (see Fingure) to form the Sn4S4 broken-cube clusters that constitute the open framework of R-SnS-1.
