Triphenyltin hydride is the chemical compound with the formula (C6H5)3SnH. It is a distillable reagent that is often used as a source of "H dot" to generate radicals or cleave C-O bonds. It is colorless material that melts close to room temperature.

Ph3SnH, as it is more commonly abbreviated, is prepared by treatment of the chloride with lithium aluminium hydride.[1]
