New halogen-containing tetrametallic aluminium alkoxides of formula [Al{(μ-OEt)2AlMeCl}3] (2-cis; 2-trans), and [Al{(μ-OEt)2AlBr2}3] (4), have been synthesized by combining Al(OEt)3 and Me2AlCl (for 2) or EtAlBr2 (for 4). They were fully characterized by (1H, 27Al) NMR, IR, mp, elemental analysis, and single-crystal X-ray diffractometry. The chloride analogue of 4, [Al{(μ-OEt)2AlCl 2}3] (3), prepared previously using a different route, was also prepared here by combining Al(OEt)3 and EtAlCl2.
