Abstract

The reaction of guanidines, triazenes, amidines, and lithium amidinates with trimethylamine alane ([AlH3(NMe3)]), lithium tetrahydridoaluminate, trimethylaluminum, aluminum trichloride, and indium trichloride is reported. Equimolar reactions utilising hindered N,N'-bis(2, 6-diisopropylphenyl)guanidines afford [{AlX2L}n] species through hydrogen elimination (X = H) from [AlH3(NMe3)] (n = 2) with HCGiso (1), HDGiso (2), or HDPiso (3) [CGiso = N,N'-bis(2, 6-disopropylphenyl)-N''-dicyclohexylguanidinate, DGiso = N,N',N''-tris(2, 6-diisopropylphenyl)guanidinate, DPiso = N,N'-bis(2, 6-diisopropylphenyl)-P-2, 6-diisopropylphenylphosphguanidinate], or through methane elimination (X = Me) from AlMe3 ..
