The crystal structure of the title compound, [Rb(C18H36N2O6)]3RbSn9, consists of deltahedral [Sn9](4-) cluster anions, Rb(+) cations and cryptand mol-ecules, which partially sequester the cations. Those cations, which are not coordinated by cryptand mol-ecules, are neighboured directly to the [Sn9](4-) clusters and inter-connect them to form ∞(1)[RbSn9](3-) chains. These chains extend parallel to [001] and are arranged in a pseudo-hexa-gonal rod packing, separated by the Rb-cryptand complex cations.
