Does F3SnOSnF3 exist, and if so what are its melting and boiling points, and what are its solubilities in water and oil?

If the first letter is F and not Fe, I think you should have written Sn2OF6. I will have to find among tin minerals, then I'll tell you.

Edit. I haven't found it among minerals, so I too don't know if it exists. Did you make a compound that makes you think to that formula?

I think he may well have written it as he did to indicate a particular structure.
Whether or not the stuff exists I don't know. There don't seem to be any references on the web to "bis trifluorostannyl ether" or any other names I could dream up for it.

BC - a question from curiosity/ignorance - Why do you call it an ether?  I thought ethers were organic, which in turn I thought meant at least some carbon.  Or can the tin and fluorine act in place of a carbon group?

Tin is a Group 4 element, and can act like carbon in certain situations.
