Thermal behaviour of aryloxides of titanium(IV) of composition TiCln(OAr)4−n (wheren=0→3 and OAr=OC6But-4, OC6H4OMe-4 and OC6H2-Bu 2 t -2,6−Me-4) has been studied by DTA and TG analysis. Multiple decomposition steps have been indicated by thermal weight losses which are both exothermic and endothermic as shown by DTA curves. Based upon the total % loss in weight; during entire decomposition titanium dioxide has been found to be the final residue in each case.
