Tin is a natural metallic element with atomic symbol Sn and atomic number 50. It is a soft, white, silvery metal that does not dissolve in water. It is present in brass, bronze, pewter, and some soldering materials. Tin metal is used to line cans for food, beverages, and aerosols. Tin can combine with other chemicals to form compounds. Combinations with chemicals like chlorine, sulfur, or oxygen are called inorganic tin compounds (including stannous chloride, stannous sulfide, and stannic oxide). These are used in toothpaste, perfumes, soaps, food additives and dyes. Tin also can combine with carbon to form organotin compounds (including dibutyltin, tributyltin, and triphenyltin). These compounds are used to make plastics, food packages, plastic pipes, pesticides, paints, and pest repellents. Tin metal, and inorganic and organic tin compounds can be found in the air, water, and soil near places where they are naturally present in the rocks, or where they are mined, manufactured, or used. Organic tin compounds present with higher toxicity than inorganic tin compounds. Thus, for the purpose of this monograph, the information related only to inorganic tin compounds will be used.
