Abstract

The group 13 monoalkoxometallanes [Me 2 Ga(OC(CH 3 ) 2 CH 2 OMe)] 2 (1) and [Me 2 In(OCH(CH 3 )CH 2 OMe)] 2 (2), incorporating donor functionalised alkoxides, were synthesised from the reaction of GaMe 3 or InMe 3 with ROH (R=C(CH 3 ) 2 CH 2 OMe (1); R=CH(CH 3 )CH 2 OMe (2)) in toluene. X-ray crystallography showed that both compounds adopt dimeric structures with a planar M 2 O 2 ring, and each group 13 atom is coordinated in a distorted trigonal bipyramidal geometry. The AACVD reaction of GaMe 3 and ROH (R =C(CH 3 ) 2 CH 2 OMe, CH 2 CH 2 OMe, CH 2 CH 2 NMe 2 ) resulted in the formation of thin films of Ga 2 O 3 on glass substrates at 450°C. The gallium oxide films were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray powder diffraction, energy dispersive analysis of X-rays, wavelength dispersive analysis of X-rays and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. This CVD technique offers a rapid, convenient route to Ga 2 O 3 , which involves the in situ formation of dimethylgallium alkoxides, of the type [Me 2 Ga(μ-OR)] 2 similar to compound 1. © 2010 - IOS Press and the authors.
