Tin(II) acetate is used as a reactant for the synthesis of Sn-Cu bimetallic nanoparticles. It is also utilized for the magnification of the rate of thermal depolymerization of poly(lactic acid) fibers. It finds application as a tin source for the preparation of high surface area tin oxide catalysts. The other way this product can be used is for the preparation of tin anode by organic electroplating for rechargeable thin-film batteries. One more application of Sn(CH3CO2)2 is obtaining of tin(IV) oxide thin films by photochemical vapor deposition. See link below
