Abstract: Titanium complexes have been widely used as catalysts for C‑C bond-forming processes via free-radical routes. Herein we provide an overview of some of the most significant contributions in the field, that covers the last decade, emphasizing the key role played by titanium salts in the promotion of selective reactions aimed at the synthesis of multifunctional organic compounds, including nucleophilic radical additions to imines, pinacol and coupling reactions, ring opening of epoxides and living polymerization.
Keywords: radical chemistry; titanium; titanocene; TiCl3; TiCl4; nucleophilic addition; pinacolization; cross-coupling; ring opening of epoxides; multicomponent reactions
