Abstract

The reaction of diorgano-dichalcogens (ER)2 (E=Se or Te) with trimethylamine adducts of alane or gallane yields trimethylamine adducts of the tris(selenolato- or tellurolato-)metal (III) species [Me3NM(ER) 3] (M=Al, Ga; E=Se, Te; R=Et, Ph, CH2Ph); two of which have been structurally authenticated as four coordinate, monomeric species in the solid state.
