The title compound, [Al(C10H8NO)2(C18H13O)], is representative of the class of compounds commonly known as the blue aluminium chelates (BAlq) that are useful in organic electroluminescent devices. The geometry of this compound is approximately trigonal–bipyramidal, with the trigonal base formed by the O donor atoms of the phenolate and two quinolinolate ligands.
