The lithium derivative (1) reacted with AlCl 3 or Me 2AlCl to give, respectively, the monomeric compounds (2a) and (2b). The product from reaction with commercially available GaBr 3 was the analytically pure monomeric heterocycle (3), indicating that the starting halide had been partially hydrolysed before use. The reaction between 1 and commercially available InCl 3 gave a homogenous white solid (4) with X = Cl (59%) or OH (41%). The X-ray crystal structures of 2a, 3, and 4 have been determined.
