Abstract

The synthesis and structural characterization of a trialkylaluminum amine adduct, Me3AlNH2tBu (1), four dimeric aluminum primary amides, [Me2AlNHtBu]2 (2), [tBu2AlNHPh]2(3), [iBu2AlNH(2,6-iPr2)Ph]2 (4), [(Me3Si)2AlNHPh]2 (5) and a monomeric aluminium amide, Mes2AlN(SiMe3)2 (6) are reported. Compounds 2_5 contribute to the relatively small number of structurally characterized primary amido complexes of aluminium. Compound 6 is one of a few examples of a monomeric, three-coordinate dialkyl aliminum amide.
