Vibrational properties of ethyltitanium trichloride and its 1,2-bis(dimethylphosphino)ethane adduct: characterisation of isolated ν(C–H) modes and implications for agostic bonding

Abstract

The IR spectra of normal and specifically deuteriated [CH 3 CH 2 TiCl 3 ] show that coordination by Me 2 PCH 2 CH 2 PMe 2 (dmpe) results in an unusually low stretching frequency for one of the β-C–H bonds in the ethyltitanium fragment; the results are analysed for their relevance to the bonding in the β-agostic unit in the light of quantum chemical calculations.
