dc.description.abstractThe first example of a well-defined binary, low-oxidation-state aluminum hydride species that is stable at ambient temperature, namely the dianion in [{(DepNacnac)Mg}2(μ-H)]2[H3Al-AlH3] (DepNacnac=[(DepNCMe)2CH]−, Dep=2,6-diethylphenyl), has been prepared via a magnesium(I) reduction of the alanate complex, (DepNacnac)Mg(μ-H)3AlH(NEt3). An X-ray crystallographic analysis has shown the compound to be a contact ion complex, which computational studies have revealed to be the source of the stability of the aluminum(II) dianion.
