2014_08/2014Bulky Titanium Amides: C–H Bond Activation under Mild Conditions (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 8/2014)

The cover picture shows the broad chemistry of the abundant dicyclohexylamidotitanium trichloride. The remarkable crystallization properties of the light red starting material are significant for all products obtained. All variations in the coordination sphere are always accompanied by color changes. In subsequent reactions, octahedrally coordinated complexes are formed by addition of Lewis bases as well as chelating N,N'- or P,P'-ligands. An excellent proton acceptor ligand can be introduced by complexation of a sterically demanding pentafulvene. In this way, selective C–H bond activation processes are initiated, and they lead to three- or four-membered titanacycles by spontaneous b- and g-C–H elimination reactions. Details are discussed in the article by R. Beckhaus et al. on p. 1289 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.
