Hydrogenation of rubbers: Titanocene Dichloride and derivatives are used as hydrogenation catalyst for rubbers, like SBS and SEBS, to improve heat stability and resistance to ozone/oxidation . Polymerization: Titanocene Dichloride can be used with polymethylaluminoxane as a catalyst for metallocene type olefin polymerizations . Organic synthesis: Titanocene Dichloride is a useful reagent for a wide variety of synthetic transformations. It can be used with Grignard reagents for the reduction of aryl and vinyl halides ; with magnesium for the reduction of organic halides, azo compounds, haloketones, and haloesters ; with sodium for the reduction of aliphatic aldehydes, esters, and epoxides ; for the reductive decyanation of alkyl nitriles ; and the reduction of olefins . Titanocene Dichloride has been used with alkylaluminum compounds for the alkylation of α-olefins  and alkynylsilanes . It can be reacted with trimethylaluminum to form Tebbe reagent, which is used to transform a carbonyl into a methylene group . Nouryon can further convert Titanocene Dichloride into derivatives required by the customer, e.g. by substituting the Cl-atoms by other groups or by replacing the cyclopentadienyl rings with substituted cyclopentadienyl rings.
