Bis(2-dimethylaminoethyl)amido gallane, H2GaN(CH 2CH2-NMe2)2, that melts at 27 °C and remains stable upon heating at 55 °C for two days, was synthesized either from the reaction of the quinuclidine adduct of monochlorogallane with the lithium salt of the corresponding amine, or from the reaction of trimethylamine gallane and the amine; the latter affords an unusual co-product with both GaH2 and GaH3 bonded to the same amido nitrogen.
