Reactions of CrCl3·3THF with lithium alkoxides in 1:3 molar ratio in the respective primary alcohols yield insoluble trialkoxides, Cr(OR)3 (where R = Me, Et, Bu-n). The corresponding reactions with isopropyl and tertiary butyl alcohols, however, yield hydrolysed products only. We have been able to synthesize the isopropoxide and t. butoxide also by alternative routes. All the alkoxides have been characterized by physico-chemical methods and attempts have been made to study their alcoholysis reactions.
