Do solid-state structures reflect Lewis acidity trends of heavier group 13 trihalides? Experimental and theoretical case study.

Abstract

Lewis acidity trends of aluminum and gallium halides have been considered on the basis of joint X-ray and density functional theory studies. Structures of complexes of heavier group 13 element trihalides MX(3) (M = Al, Ga; X = Cl, Br, I) with monodentate nitrogen-containing donors Py, pip, and NEt(3) as well as the structure of the AlCl(3)·PPh(3) adduct… (More)
