Aluminum tridecamer (Al13) salt of 70% purity can be yielded by slowly adding base to a mixed aluminum chloride solution with sodium chloride as the primary byproduct. The purity of the so-produced Al13 solution is typically increased to >90% using sulfate precipitation and nitrate metathesis reactions (the SO42-/Ba2+ separation method). However, the presence of excess sulfate and, as demonstrated in this study, excess chloride ions can destabilize Al13 clusters. This study applied the organic solvent precipitation technique to purify crude Al 13 salt. The solution and solid-state 27Al nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra indicate that Al13 purity was >95%. The infrared adsorption spectra had clear Al13 characteristic bands. The electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) tests identified Al137+ species. The organic solvent precipitation method purified Al13 clusters with minimal free Cl - ions. ? 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
