The gas-chromatographic behavior of aluminum(III), gallium(III), and indium(III) chelates with various β-diketones was investigated. The β-diketones studied were acetylacetone and 8 synthesized, alkyl-substituted acetylacetones, benzoylacetone, dibenzoylmethane, trifluoroacetylacetone and its 5 synthesized alkyl derivatives, hexafluoroacetylacetone, benzoyltrifluoroacetone, furoyltrifluoroacetone, and thenoyltrifluoroacetone. The trifluoromethyl group increases the volatility of the chelates, while the aromatic group tends to decrease the volatility. In the alkyl-substituted acetylacetone series, the retention time of the chelates increases with an increase in the molecular weight, but it does not depend upon the volatility. On the other hand, the retention of the chelates containing the trifluoromethyl group is almost inversely correlated with the volatility.
