  • Patent number: 10239892
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for the cost-effective and environmentally friendly production of alkyl indium sesquichloride in high yield and with high selectivity and purity. The alkyl indium sesquichloride produced according to the invention is particularly suitable, also as a result of the high purity and yield, for the production, on demand, of indium-containing precursors in high yield and with high selectivity and purity. As a result of the high purity, the indium-containing precursors that can be produced are particularly suitable for metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) or metal organic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE). The novel method according to the invention is characterized by the improved execution of the method, in particular a rapid process control. Owing to targeted and extensive use of raw materials that are cost-effective and have a low environmental impact, the method is also suitable for use on an industrial scale.

The process is based on the reaction of metal trichloride (MeCl3) with alkylaluminium sesquichloride (R3Al2Cl3) in the presence of at least one alkali metal halide as auxiliary base. The reaction mixture is heated to a temperature above 120° C. and the trialkylmetal compound is separated off from the reaction mixture via a separator, with partially alkylated products being at the same time recirculated to the reaction mixture. In a further step, the reaction mixture is heated to a maximum of 350° C. and the remaining alkylated and partially alkylated products are separated off. The products obtained in this way can optionally be recycled in the process.
