- Sunlight photolysis of the title dititanium complex induces its dehydrogenative rearrangement.
- The far main product contains four bridging moieties - µ-CH, CH2, H and octamethylfulvalene.
- Bridging µ-H is responsible for very short Ti-Ti distance and strong distortion of octamethylfulvalene.
- Minor octamethylfulvalene byproducts with one less bridging moiety were isolated.
- Common octamethylfulvalene ligand exerts mutually rotated rings (~40 °).
