The title compound, [Sn2(C72H98)Te 2(Te3)], has a cage-like structure with bulky aryl substituents on the Sn atoms. The molecule sits over a crystallographic twofold axis, and hence the asymmetric unit consists of one half-molecule. Due to the twofold axis, the tritelluride part has a 1:1 disorder. One of the six-membered rings has a boat conformation, whereas the other has a chair conformation. The ditelluradistannane ring has a bent structure, with a dihedral angle of 32.89 (2)° between the two Te - Sn - Te planes.
