A new layered inorganic-organic hybrid possessing a Ti-O network has been prepared by a reaction between titanium oxychloride (TiOCl) and lithium ethoxide (LiOEt) at 120 °C for 7 days. The XRD analysis indicates that the interlayer distance of TiOCl increases from 0.80 to 1.19nm, and the solid-state 13CNMR spectroscopy and elemental analysis show partial substitution of ethoxy groups for chlorine atoms.
