MOLECULAR AND ELECTRONIC-STRUCTURES OF BIS[1,4-BIS(TRIMETHYL-SILYL)CYCLOOCTATETRAENE] SANDWICH COMPLEXES OF TITANIUM AND ZIRCONIUM

Abstract:

The reaction between 2 equivalents of [Li2{C8H6(SiMe3)2}] and [MCl4(thf)2] (M = Ti or Zr) in tetrahydrofuran (thf) afforded the sandwich complexes [M{C8H6(SiMe3)2}2]. X-Ray studies showed that the zirconium compound adopts a structure in which one ring is bound in an η8 fashion whilst the other adopts a novel η3 co-ordination mode. This unusual bonding situation has been studied using extended-Hückel molecular-orbital calculations and photoelectron spectroscopy. In contrast, the titanium comp...
