Abstract

original image

A butterfly-shaped framework is observed for the Ni2Al2 unit in the title compound, which is synthesized from [(Cp*Al)4] and [Cp2Ni]. The planes of the Cp* ligands are nearly perpendicular to the planes of the Ni2Al triangles. The NiAl complex is diamagnetic, only slightly air- and moisture-sensitive, and remarkably stable.
