Abstract

A neutral trialuminum complex incorporates a pentacoordinate carbon through a methylidene bridge linking the three metal atoms. The rigid electron-deficient Al3 core stabilizes the hypercoordinate carbon atom resulting in the shortest equatorial Al–C distance reported for such Al₃-(µ³-CH₂) unit.
