Description

General description

Titanium(IV) chloride participates in the Baylis-Hillman reaction of arylaldehydes with methyl vinyl ketone. Neutral solutions of TiCl4 having a pH in the range of 2.5 to 6.0 (prepared by the addition of magnesium oxide as a base) are used to synthesize nanosized titanium dioxide.

Application

Activates pyrrolidines for improved conversion, via a modified Bouveault reaction, to the corresponding α,α-dimethylamines.

Promotes a highly selective aldol reaction of (S)-2-benzyloxy-3-pentanone in THF or DME.

Titanium(IV) chloride has been used in the synthesis of anatase TiO2 structures with macropores (250nm in diameter) and mesoscale pores (50nm in diameter).

Packaging

10, 50 g in glass bottle
