Abstract

An unusually strong metal‐arene back‐bonding characterizes the bonding in the title complex 1, which is obtained in the form of deep purple‐red, air‐stable crystals on reduction of [TiCl3(trimpsi)(thf)], trimpsi = tBuSi(CH2PMe2)3, with naphthalenesodium in THF. This 16e‐complex has an overall three‐legged piano‐stool geometry, and the π‐bonded naphthalenring has partial dienediyl character. (Figure Presented.)
