This review provides a summary of the synthetic approaches to stannides. The described methods involve distannane cleavage, reduction of halostannanes, nucleophilic abstraction of stannyl, silyl, or boryl groups, hydrostannane deprotonation, nucleophilic addition to stannylenes, and transmetalation. Although the major emphasis is on the preparation of monostannides, multiply metalated tin compounds and stannole mono- and dianions are also covered.
