Alkylaluminium aminoalkoxide chlorides [R(Cl)AlOR*] 1-3 have been obtained from the reaction of dialkyl aluminium chlorides R2AlCl with the respective aminoalkohol HOR* (1: R = Et, OR* = dimethylamino-1-propanol; 2: R = Me, OR* = (+);(-)-dimethylamino-2-propanol; 3: R = Me, OR* = (S)-N-methyl-2-pyrrolidinyl-methanol). The reaction between dimethylaluminium chloride and (S)-alpha,alpha-diphenyl-2-pyrrolidinyl-methanol (OR* = Dpm) yielded, by contrast, the ionic {[MeAl(OR*)(2)AlMe2](+) [MeAlCl3](-)} complex (4). 1-4 have been characterised by H-1,C-13 and Al-27-NMR spectroscopy. Crystal structures of 1 and of the 1:1 solvate of 4 with Et2O have been determined by X-ray methods and the absolute structure of 4 was confirmed by refinement of the Flack-parameter. The dimeric molecules of 1 are composed of two chelating rings linked via an almost planar Al2O2 unit and pentacoordination is observed about aluminium. In contrast, each of the two crystallographically independent cation molecules of 4 contains one four- and and one five-coordinate metal centre.
