The first AlI halide that can be manipulated at room temperature, AlBr-NEt3, is obtained by coconden-sation of AlBr, NEt3, and toluene as yellow crystals and is stable to disproportionation up to about 95°C. In the crystal four Al atoms form a square, and the Br and NEt3 ligands alternate above and below this plane (shown on the right).
