Abstract

original image

Monomeric iminoalane: A donor-stabilized monomeric iminoalane was prepared by the reaction of 1 with an N-heterocyclic carbene (see scheme). The X-ray structure exhibits a very short Al[BOND]N bond of 1.705(4) Å, which suggests multiple-bond character. Treatment of the iminoalane with phenyl acetylene, aniline, and carbon monoxide resulted in addition reactions to the formal Al[DOUBLE BOND]N bond, thus indicating that the Al[BOND]N multiple bond is highly reactive.
