Oligomeric group 13 hydroxide compounds—a rare but varied class of molecules

Author affiliations

Abstract

This tutorial review surveys the wide variety of oligomeric hydroxide structures formed from aluminum, gallium, and indium. Both inorganic and ligand-supported structures are reviewed, providing a leading introduction to this research area. In addition to homometallic clusters comprising only one metal type, a series of heterometallic structures are described. This review highlights the synthesis and characterization of these nanoscale cluster compounds that have implications in a variety of fields, including catalysis, mineral mimicry, environmental chemistry, geochemistry, materials science, and semiconductors.
