Conversion of dimeric aluminum dihydride 1 via ditelluride 2 to monotopic aluminum telluride 3 and its dimerization via intermediate 4 to tellurium-bridged 5 (Dip=2,6-diisopropylphenyl, LEt=1,3-diethyl-4,5-dimethyl-imidazolin-2-ylidene). (i) Toluene, rt, 48 h. (ii) Benzene, rt, 48 h. (iii) Benzene, 80 °C, 22 h; rt=ambient temperature.
