[Extract] the five-coordinate aluminium centre is distorted trigonal bipyramidal with the two aromatic nitrogens in axial positions and the two amido nitrogens and chloride atoms in the equatorial positions. The overall structure is similar to the related [AlCI(8-amidoquinoline)₂], [1] exept that in the present compound, the chelating ligand has a much smaller bite angle, forming a four-menmbered chelate ring rather than a five-membered ring.
