The X-ray crystal structure of Ti(BH4)3(PMe 3)2 shows that two of the BH4- groups possess unusual geometries involving interaction of the titanium centre with one B-H bond in a 'side-on' manner; this geometry resembles one proposed transition state for the approach of a molecule of methane to a transition metal leading to C-H bond cleavage.
