Addition of 3 equiv. of AlMe3 to a heptadentate Schiff-base ligand made from salicylaldehyde and bis(2-aminoethyl)-ethylenediamine (H3L1) results in an unusual alkylalumination of one of the imine bonds; addition of 2 equiv. of B(OMe)3 or AlMe3 to one of these ligands leads to the formation of bimetallic derivatives containing four- and five-coordinate metals, respectively.
