The electronic structure of polystannane (PSn), (SnH2)n, has been calculated by the first principle local density functional method. The effect of bond-angle distortion on PSn's first band gap is also investigated theoretically. The common features in the group IV polymers are then summarized by comparison with previous calculated results for polysilane (SiH2)n and polygermane (GeH2)n.
