Fixation of Dinitrogen at an Asymmetric Binuclear Titanium N2 Complex



We report the first example of a binuclear Ti–N2 complex with
triphenolamine that adopts trigonal bipyramidal and octahedral
geometries on the Ti centers. The activated N2 was reduced to
ammonia with 154% yield (per Ti atom) in the presence of
proton and electron sources.
