Abstract

Reaction of the cyclic ligand (2Z,6Z)-piperidine-2,6-dione dioxime with TiCl4 and KOH yielded the hexanuclear cluster K6[TiIV6(μ3-O)2(μ2-O)3(CH3O)6(μ2–η1,η1,η2-Hpidiox-O,N,O′)4(μ2–η1,η1,η2-pidiox-O,N,O′)2]·7.5CH3OH possessing a new {Ti6O5} structural motif. The cluster core {Ti6O5} is wrapped by external tripodal imide dioxime ligands, showing good solubility and stability and thus, allowing its solution to be studied by means of electrospray ionization mass spectrometry, electrochemistry and 2D NMR, c. w. EPR and UV-vis spectroscopies. Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations reveal that the cyclo-Ti3 metallic cores exhibit metallaromaticity which is expected to contribute to the stabilization of this system.
