Abstract: We study ring-theoretic and homological properties of the quadratic dual (or Koszul dual) $ \mathcal {E}_n^!$ of the Fomin-Kirillov algebras $ \mathcal {E}_n$; these algebras are connected $ \mathbb{N}$-graded and are defined for $ n \geq 2$. We establish that the algebra $ \mathcal {E}_n^!$ is module finite over its center (and thus satisfies a polynomial identity), is Noetherian, and has Gelfand-Kirillov dimension $ \lfloor n/2 \rfloor $ for each $ n \geq 2$. We also observe that $ \mathcal {E}_n^!$ is not prime for $ n \geq 3$. By a result of Roos, $ \mathcal {E}_n$ is not Koszul for $ n \geq 3$, so neither is $ \mathcal {E}_n^!$ for $ n \geq 3$. Nevertheless, we prove that $ \mathcal {E}_n^!$ is Artin-Schelter (AS-)regular if and only if $ n=2$, and that $ \mathcal {E}_n^!$ is both AS-Gorenstein and AS-Cohen-Macaulay if and only if $ n=2,3$. We also show that the depth of $ \mathcal {E}_n^!$ is $ \leq 1$ for each $ n \geq 2$, conjecture that we have equality, and show that this claim holds for $ n =2,3$. Several other directions for further examination of $ \mathcal {E}_n^!$ are suggested at the end of this article.
