This chapter presents syntheses of Ti(CO)3(DMPE)2, DMPE = 1,2-bis(dimethylphosphano)ethane, and [Ti(CO)6]2-. The former compound is of interest because it is the first isolable and well-characterized derivative of the unknown Ti(CO)7 and is a key precursor to other zero-valent titanium carbonyls. All operations are conducted under an atmosphere of 99.9% argon or 99.5% carbon monoxide. Standard Schlenk techniques are employed with a double-manifold vacuum line. The chapter discusses the procedures and properties of bis(1,2-bis(dimethylphosphano)ethane) tricarbonyltitanium(0) and 18-crown-6 bis(acetonitrile)potassium hexacarbonyltitanate(2 -).
