Abstract: In the monomeric title titanium(III) compound, [Ti(C12H21N2Si)2Cl], the metal atom is surrounded by two N-silylated anilide ligands in an N,N''-chelating mode. The two ends of the N-Si-N chelating unit exhibit different affinity to the metal center. The Ti-Namine bond is longer than the Ti-Nanilide bond by about 0.29 Å. The two ligands are arranged trans to each other and the molecule demonstrates a pseudo-twofold rotation along the axis of the Ti-Cl bond. The five-coordinate Ti atom demonstrates a highly distorted trigonal-bipyramidal geometry.
