The isotopic evolution of the relationship between the symmetry energy at saturation density of nuclear matter (J), neutron skin thickness (ΔR) and relevant observables related to isovector dipole excitations in neutron rich 116−136Sn isotopes has been investigated in the framework of relativistic nuclear energy density functional theory. The description employs a family of effective interactions with density dependent meson-nucleon couplings (DDME) spanning the range of values J = 30 − 38 MeV.
