Abstract

[L1AlMe]⋅THF (1; L1=CH[C(CH2)](CMe)(2,6-iPr2C6H3N)2) is prepared by a new method to test its reactivity towards metal complexes to give heterobimetallic or polymetallic complexes. The treatment of 1 with germanium chloride ([LGeCl]), tin chloride ([LSnCl]; L=CH(CMe2,6-iPr2C6H3N)2), bismuth amide ([1,8-C10H6(NSiMe3)2BiNMe2]), and dimethyl zinc (ZnMe2) gave the desired compounds with different functional groups on the aluminum center. All compounds have been thoroughly characterized by multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, EI mass spectrometry, X-ray crystallography (2, 3, and 5), and elemental analysis.
