    Aluminum alkyl complexes have very useful applications as catalysts or reagents in small molecule transformations and as cocatalysts in olefin polymerization. This short review focuses on some recent developments in the design, synthesis and structure of aluminum(III) alkyl complexes supported by various ligands bearing nitrogen, oxygen, sulfur or phosphorus atoms, and their catalytic applications in the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of cyclic esters. The coordination chemistry of the Al metal centre and the catalytic activity changes of the complexes caused by ligand modifications are also discussed.
