Reactions of [Ti(CO)6]2- and chlorotriphenyl-methane or chlorotris(4-methoxyphenyl)methane provide the first examples of trityltitanium complexes. These have been shown by IR, NMR, and single-crystal X-ray structural characterizations to have the molecular formula [Ti(CO)45-C(4-C6H4R) 3}]- (R = H, OCH3).
