      Abstract: The reaction of trimethylaluminum with   2,4,6-triphenylbenzoic acid and the isoelectronic fluoren-9-one   phenylhydrazone gave the dialkylaluminum complexes   [Me2Al{μ-O2CPh(Ph3)}]2 (4) and [Me2AlNPhN:C13H8]2 (5). The   synthesis of these complexes, as well as their spectroscopic and   structural characterization are reported. X-ray crystallog.   studies show that the carboxylato complex 4 adopts a dimeric   structure contg. an 8-membered O-Al-O-C core whereas the   hydrazonato complex 5 likewise is dimeric in the solid state, but   exhibits a 6-membered N-Al-N heterocyclic ring.
