Abstract

Reaction of Cp 2Ti[η 2-(CSiMe 3) 2] with an α-aryloxy ketone produces a Ti(IV) enolate aryloxide complex. Selective protonolysis of the enolate ligand or both Ti-OR bonds can be achieved with various acids. The reaction of the enolate aryloxide with 1-phenyl-2-phenoxyethanol is catalyzed by a mixture of NEt 3 and [HNEt 3]X (X = OTf, BPh 4).
