<p>In the present work, are calculated the gas formation enthalpies (SE; PM3 and PM6) for tin borates: SnB<sub>2</sub>O<sub>4</sub><sup> </sup>and Sn<sub>2</sub>B<sub>2</sub>O<sub>5</sub>. The calculated values are compared with experimental ones, obtained by Knudsen effusion mass spectrometry [3]. It is shown that SE methods, besides their lower computational time consuming can, indeed, provide reliable gas phase formation enthalpy values for inorganic compounds containing heavy metals.</p>
