A survey of our recent work on organoaluminum and organogallium hydrides is presented. Three types of ligand system have been employed for the stabilization of monomeric aluminum and gallium mono- and dihydrides. The "two-armed" 2,6-bis (dimethylaminomethyl) phenyl ligand is effective when intramolecular bis(base) stabilization is necessary; its use has permitted the isolation of the first examples of monomeric aluminum and gallium dihydrates. The use of the corresponding "one-armed" 2-(dimethylaminomethyl) phenyl ligand resulted in the formation of gallium mono- and dihydride monomers and an aluminum dihydride dimer. The first base-free aluminum and gallium monohydrides and gallium dihydride have been stabilized by employing the bulky 2, 4, 6, -tris(t-butyl) phenyl ligand. © 1995.
