The title complex, [Sn IV(C 44H 28N 4)(CNO)(OH)], exhibits substitutional disorder of the OH - and OCN - axial ligands. Thus, the cyanato-O ligand and the hydroxyl group bonded to the central Sn IV atom share statistically the axial position. The Sn IV ion is hexa-coordinated by the four N atoms of the pyrrole rings of the tetra-phenyl-porphyrin (TPP) and the O atoms of the two disordered OCN - and OH - axial ligands. The equatorial tin-pyrrole N atom distance (Sn - Np) is 2.100 (2) Å and the axial Sn - O(OCN) or Sn - O(OH) bond length is 2.074 (2) Å.
