Reactions of Ph2P(O)(OH) and t-BuP(O)(OSiMe3)(OH) with Ti(O-i-Pr)4 in equimolar ratios gave titanium phosphonates of the type [(O-i-Pr)3Ti(mu-O)2PR1R2]2 (1, R1 = R2 = Ph; 2, R1 = t-Bu, R2 = OSiMe3) as colorless crystalline solids in moderate yields. Reactions of Ph2P(O)(OH) and the isopropoxides of zirconium and hafnium resulted in products of the composition [(O-i-Pr)3M(mu-O-i-Pr)2(mu-OPOPh2)M(O-i-Pr)2]Ph2P(O)(OH) (M = Zr (3), Hf (4)) in high yields. The compounds were characterized by 1H, 31P, and 29Si NMR, infrared (IR), and mass spectroscopic (MS) techniques. The molecular structures of 2 and 3 were confirmed by X-ray crystallography.
