Abstract:

The attempted dehalosilylation reactions between AlX3 X Cl, Br and PSiMe33 in toluene in 11 mole ratios afforded only the adducts Cl3Aldo PSiMe33 I and Br3AldotPSiMe33 II, respectively. Compounds I and II were characterized by 1H, 13C, 27Al, and 31P solution NMR spectroscopy, as well as partial elemental analysis. In addition, the solid state structures of the toluene solvates of I and II were determined by single-crystal X-ray analysis. Characterization revealed that the solid solvated adducts I and II are isostructural and their crystals are isomorphous. In each compound, the Al and the P atoms reside in tetrahedral environments, with each X3AldotPSiMe33 X Cl, Br molecule associated with one interstitial toluene molecule in the crystals. These adducts are noteworthy in that they possess extremely short, essentially equal Al-P bond lengths For I Al-P 2.3924 A, and for III Al-P 2.3916 A, which are the shortest found to date in aluminum-phosphorus molecular species.
