Titanocene complexes and curcuminoid species have both independently been shown to exhibit a number of biologically relevant properties. While complexes of the type [(η5-cyclopentadienyl)Ti(β-diketonate)]+ have been reported, no curcumin-based analogue has ever been synthesized. Using a straight forward method, several [(η5-cyclopentadienyl)Ti("curc")]+ ("curc" = curcuminoidate) have been prepared using an array of synthetic curcumin analogues. 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and single crystal X-ray diffractometry have all been utilized to characterize these compounds.
