Abstract

We have recently synthesized Ti(BH4)3(THF)3 and V(BH4)2(TMEDA)2 complexes. The reaction of TiCl3(THF)3 with NaBH4 in dry THF gave flat blue crystals, Ti(BH4)3(THF)3. The reaction of VCl3 with NaBH4 in presence of N, N, N', N'- tetramethylethylenediamine, TMEDA, produced violet crystals, V(BH4)2(TMEDA)2. Vibrational and magnetic properties of Ti(BH4)3(THF)3 and V(BH4)2(TMEDA)2 have been studied.
