Double act: Well-defined tin alkoxide precursors have been prepared for application in the twin polymerization process, which provides composite materials composed of SnO2 nanoparticles entrapped in a polymer matrix (see scheme). Subsequent oxidation of the composite materials gives high-surface-area tin oxide and composites composed of SnO2/SiO2.
