The gas phase structures of tin cluster anions have been studied by a combination of trapped ion electron diffraction and density functional theory calculations. In the size range of these clusters comprise dimers of stable subunits. In particular and are homodimers of and subunits, respectively. In two units are linked by three additional bridging atoms and is a heterodimer of and subunits. This rather unexpected growth mode is rationalized by the extraordinary stability of the building blocks , , and .
