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 AlN 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 AlN bond, thus indicating that the AlN multiple bond is highly reactive.
