Rutile - TiO2
TiO2 has a common structural arrangement shared by many fluorides of the transition metals with formula MX2. Generally, if the radius ratio r-/r+ exceeds ~1.37 then a rutile rather than fluorite structure is favoured.

Complexes that share this structure include..
CrF2, CrCl2, MnF2, FeF2, CoF2, NiF2, V2O4 and TiO2 as well as MgF2 and ZnF2.
