A Convenient Quick Synthesis of SnBu<sub>2</sub>RCl Derivatives

A convenient method for the quick preparation of SnBu<sub>2</sub>RX (Bu = <i>n</i>-Bu) has been developed using microwave irradiation and column chromatography in acidic alumina. The method can be a good alternative particularly for easy and quick preparation of small amounts for test purposes and, in general, for the synthesis of compounds that cannot be purified by fractional distillation due to thermal lability or low volatility.
