Probing the coordination environment of Ti(3+) ions coordinated to nitrogen-containing Lewis bases.

Multi-frequency continuous-wave and pulsed EPR techniques are employed to investigate the coordination of nitrogen-containing ligands to Ti(3+)-chloro complexes. Frozen solutions of TiCl3 and TiCl3(Py)3 dissolved in nitrogen-containing solvents have been investigated together with the TiCl3(Py)3 solid-state complex. For these different systems, the… CONTINUE READING
