The reduction of SnCl2 by the low-valent gallium(I) β-diketiminate GaI(ddp) gives the title complex, which is best described as a Zintl-type anionic [Sn17]4− cluster stabilized by an electrophilic shell of gallium ligands. This reaction could represent a new concept for the synthesis of metalloid main-group clusters. ddp=HC(CMeNC6H3-2,6-iPr2)2.
