A range of heteroleptic aluminium(III) formamidinate/formamidine complexes have been prepared involving metathesis reactions between AIX₃(X = Cl, Br, I) and alkali metal formamidinates. The mononuclear, bis-substituted complexes of the composition [Al(XylForm)₂CI] (XylForm = N,N'-bis (2,6-dimethylphenyl)formamidinate) (1), [Al(XylForm)₂I]·PhMe (2), [Al(DippForm)₂Cl] (DippForm = N,N'-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)formamidinate) (3), [Al(DippForm)₂I] (4), mono-substituted complexes of [Al(DippForm)Cl₂(thf)] (5), [Al(DippForm)CIBr(thf)] (6), [Al(XylFormH)Br₃] (7) and [Al(DippFormH)Br₃] (8) were synthesised. [Al₃(XylForm)₂(µ₃-O)(OH)Cl₄]₂·PhMe (9), was isolated in the reaction between K(XylForm) and AlCl₃ as a trinuclear compound.
