The mechanism of polarographic reduction of π-cyclopentadienyl compounds of titanium, containing Ti-Halσ-bonds (C5H5)2TiX2 (X= F, Cl, Br, I), on a dropping mercury electrode was studied in aqueous alcohol and dimethylformamide.
It was shown, usingTiCl4, C5H5TiCl3, (C5H5)2TiCl2 as examples, that successive replacement of chlorine atoms in TiCl4 by a cyclopentadienyl ligand does not significantly influence the mechanism of the reduction of these compounds.
