A series of pyridonate and amidate supported titanium alkoxides have been isolated. These complexes can be readily prepared in high yield, under mild reaction conditions in only two steps from commercially available (Ti(NMe2)4). We have furnished one of the rare examples of discrete catalysts for random copolymer synthesis.
