Organoelement peroxides of the heavier Group 13 elements form a class of extraordinarily reactive compounds, which decompose spontaneously by intramolecular redox processes as a result of the close contact of oxidizing peroxo groups and reducing EC bonds. The synthesis of a unique compound is presented, in which three peroxo ligands bridge three alkyl gallium groups by the formation of a nine-membered heterocycle (see structural formula).
