Catalytic dechlorination of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) using amine functionalised titanocenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Novel ring-functionalised titanocene dichloride compounds have been prepared and tested for catalytic activity for the dechlorination of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) under Schwartz conditions; they represent the first examples of metal complexes that are active under these conditions without the need for toxic additives, such as pyridine.
