Reaction between bis(cyclopentadienyl)titanacyclobutanes (1) and tetrakis(trifluoromethyl)cyclopentadienone (2) results in formal reductive elimination of cyclopropanes and activation of an sp3 C-F bond in (2) to afford the novel organometallic product (3) (structurally characterized by X-ray crystallography).
