Organotins: Organotin compounds or stannanes are chemical compounds based on tin with hydrocarbon substituents. Tributyltin oxide has been extensively used as a wood preservative. Tributyltin compounds are used as marine anti-biofouling agents. Concerns over toxicity of these compounds (some reports describe biological effects to marine life at a concentration of 1 nanogram per liter) have led to a worldwide ban by the International Maritime Organization.
