This Thesis describes the synthesis and characterisation of new alkaline earth metal and aluminium gallyl complexes. Experimental studies were performed to investigate their structure. The reactivity of these species was also studied. Chapter 1 introduces metal-metal bonded complexes containing alkaline earth metals and aluminium and the use of gallium(I) analogues of N-heterocyclic carbenes in the synthesis of heterobimetallic complexes of gallium. Chapter 2 describes the synthesis and reactivity of alkaline earth gallyl complexes supported by beta-diketiminate ligands. Chapter 3 presents the synthesis and reactivity of alkaline earth gallyl complexes supported by the carbazolide ligand CzOx. Chapter 4 describes synthesis of aluminium-gallium bonded complexes supported by amidinate and b-diketiminate ligands and the attempted study of their reactivity. Chapter 5 presents full experimental procedures and characterising data for the new complexes reported.
