Static magnetometry and continuous-wave and pulsed-electron spin resonance (ESR) is used for the characterization of the neutral radical cluster [ Al(Al3R3)2] ( R = N(SiMe2Ph)2). For temperatures below 25 K, we prove its monoradical character, a g-factor of 1.9971.991, and a three time larger hyperfine interaction with the central than with the six outer 27Al nuclei of the [ Al7R6] cluster radical. Temperature dependence of the low-temperature spin-lattice relaxation is analysed. At temperatures above 30 K, the effective moment per cluster increases, and the hyperfine interaction with the seven 27Al nuclei is equalized.
