Synthesis, structure and reaction chemistry of a nucleophilic aluminyl anion

Subtitle:
Letter
Abstract:

The reactivity of aluminium compounds is dominated by their electron deficiency and consequent electrophilicity; these compounds are archetypal Lewis acids (electron-pair acceptors). The main industrial roles of aluminium, and classical methods of synthesizing aluminium–element bonds (for example, hydroalumination and metathesis), draw on the electron deficiency of species of the type AlR3 and AlCl31,2. Whereas aluminates, [AlR4]−, are well known, the idea of reversing polarity and using an a...
