An example of unusual addition of a main-group-metal alkoxide across an alkene C=C bond was demonstrated with a dimethylvinylsilyl-substituted Sn-POSS complex (POSS = incompletely condensed polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane). The structure of the pentacoordinated Sn chelate product was confirmed by 1H, 13C, and 119Sn NMR and ESI-MS.
