Hydroxamate binding modes and protonation states have yet to be conclusively determined. Molecular titanium(iv) phenylhydroxamate complexes were synthesized as structural and spectroscopic models, and compared to functionalized TiO2 nanoparticles. In a combined experimental-theoretical study, we find that the predominant binding form is monodeprotonated, with evidence for the chelate mode.
