Organotin compounds are widely applied in the industry due to their antibacterial and fungicidal properties. Applications include preservation of wood, textiles, leather and paper, and as disinfectants. Due to their toxicity the use of trialkyltin compounds in marine antifoulding paints is restricted. The trialkyltin compounds are partly degraded to the di- and monoalkyltin derivatives.
