Low-valent aluminium compounds are among the most reactive and widely researched main-group compounds. Since the isolation of [(AlCp*)4] in 1991 as the first stable, molecular AlI compound, a variety of highly reactive neutral or anionic low-valent aluminium complexes were developed. In particular, the strongly basic aluminyl anions allowed for nucleophilic activation of a large variety of small molecules and formation of elusive transition-metal complexes. By contrast, an accessible cationic, low-valent aluminium compound combining the nucleophilicity of low-valent compounds with the electrophilicity of aluminium is hitherto unknown. Here, we report the synthesis of [Al(AlCp*)3]+[Al(ORF)4]– (RF = C(CF3)3) via a simple metathesis route. Unexpectedly, the complex ion forms a dimer in the solid state and in concentrated solutions. Addition of Lewis bases results in monomerization and coordination to the unique formal Al+ atom giving [(L)xAl(AlCp*)3]+ salts with L = hexaphenylcarbodiphosporane (cdp; x = 1), tetramethylethylenediamine (tmeda; x = 1) and 4-dimethylamino-pyridine (dmap; x = 3). Depending on the donor strength of the ligand added, the Al+–AlCp* bonds in the [(L)xAl(AlCp*)3]+ cluster cations can be finely tuned between very strong (L = nothing) to very weak and approaching isolated [Al(L)3]+ ions (L = dmap). We anticipate our easily accessible low-valent aluminium cation salts to be the starting point for investigation and potential application of this unusual compound class. In particular, the ambiphilic reactivity of the cationic, low-valent compounds will be studied. Moreover, knowledge gained from the stabilization of the reported complex salts is expected to facilitate the isolation and application of novel cationic, low-valent Al complexes.
