A new series of aluminum alkoxide molecules of formula [Al{(μ-OEt)2AlR2}3], where R = Me (1), Et (2), iBu (3), and [Al{(μ-OEt)2GaR2}3], where R = Me (4) and Et (5), have been synthesized and fully characterized. In pure form 1, 2, and 4 are crystalline solids. However, in the presence of a small amount of solvent or impurity all of the compounds exist as oils. They were characterized by 1H NMR, IR, elemental analysis, mp, and single-crystal X-ray diffractometry for compounds 1, 2, and 4.
