Abstract

  • The synthesis and molecular structure studies of [Me2AlN(i-Pr)CH2Ph]2 and the related orthometalated dimers [RAIN(i-Pr)-μ-(CH2C6H4)]2, where R = Me, n-Pr, n-Bu, i-Bu were conducted. The effects of the steric bulk of the organic substituents on the nitrogen and aluminum atoms were investigated in terms of the ease of the formation of the orthometalated dimers and their spectral and structural properties. The study of the thermolysis reactions of HN(i-Pr)CH2Ph with R3Al was also conducted.
