Inorg Chem. 1996 Apr 24;35(9):2644-2649.2-(Methylamino)pyridine (Me-APy-H), 2-anilinopyridine (Ph-APy-H), and 4-methyl-2-((trimethylsilyl)amino)pyridine (TMS-APy-H) were used to synthesize mononuclear monochloro complexes that contain two or three such aminopyridines as strained amido ligands. The reaction of 2 or 3 equiv of in situ generated lithium aminopyridinate with TiCl(4)(THF)(2) or TiCl(4) afforded just in the case of Me-APy-H a red crystalline product (Me-APy)(3)TiCl (1a) but in unacceptably low yield.
