Its molecular structure in solid-state and solution is unambiguously determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and (1)H, (13)C and (27)Al NMR spectroscopy. The single-crystal X-ray analysis revealed the presence of the dimeric THF adduct [Al(OPh)3·THF]2 with a disordered trigonal bipyramidal geometry at the aluminum atom which is bonded to a THF ligand, two terminal and two bridging phenoxy groups (OPh).
