Abstract

A tetrameric Tl4[GaBr4]4 skeletal framework, whose Tl ions are alternately coordinated by one or two mesitylene molecules, is present in the title compound. It is formed from Tl[GaBr4] and mesitylene and is the first complex containing both mono- and bis(arene)thallium units to be characterized by X-ray analysis.
