An alternative to the known thermally induced syntheses of fulvene complexes of early transition metals is now provided by the direct reductive complexation of pentafulvenes to [CpTiCl] fragments. These generally highly diastereoselective reactions enable a broad variation of substitution patterns and establish an extensive subsequent chemistry.
