Abstract

Bonding with Al: Treatment of a dialumene-benzene adduct (1) with naphthalene and anthracene afforded the corresponding dialumene-arene adducts at room temperature. A 1,2-dialuminacyclobutene derivative was also obtained by the exchange of the C6H6 moiety of 1 with bis(trimethylsilyl)acetylene. These findings exhibit the potential of 1 as a synthetic equivalent of a dialumene.
