Inorg Chem. 2000 Apr 17;39(8):1635-8.The complex [Ti(2,4-dimethyl-2,4-pentanediolate)2]2 (1) has been synthesized from [Ti(OiPr)4] by transesterification with a stoichiometric amount of 2,4-dimethyl-2,4-pentanediol. We have characterized complex 1 in the solid state by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and in the gas phase by desorption chemical ionization mass spectrometry (DCI-MS). The structural and mass spectrometric data show complex 1 to be stable as a dimer in both the solid and gas phases. Read More
