Quinuclidine-stabilized amido- and azidogallanes, HGa[N(TMS)2]2(quin) (1), H2Ga[N(TMS)2](quin) (2), HGa[N(H)(2,6-(i)Pr2C6H3)]2(quin) (3), and H2GaN3(quin) (4), were synthesized from the quinuclidine adducts of mono- and dichlorogallane. Structural determinations revealed that all compounds were monomeric with four-coordinate gallium centers. Reactions of the five-coordinate compound, HGaCl2(quin)2, with 2 equiv of Li[N(TMS)2] or Li[N(H)(2,6-(i)Pr2C6H3)] resulted in the isolation of compound 1 or 3. A ligand redistribution during the reaction of H2GaCl(quin) with Li[N(H)(2,6-(i)Pr2C6H3)] produced compound 3 and H3Ga(quin) in a 1:1 molar ratio.
