TG and DTA studies on Me3SnO2PCl2, Me2Sn(O2PCl2)2 and Ph3SnO2PCl2 were carried out under dynamic argon atmosphere. The results show that the decomposition proceeds in different stages leading to the formation of Sn3(PO4)2 as a stable product. This compound was characterized by IR spectroscopy. Decomposition schemes involving reductive elimination reactions were proposed.
