A new mixed-valent neptunium(IV/V) compound has been synthesized by evaporation of a neptunium(V) acidic solution. The structure of the compound features cation-cation-bound six-membered neptunyl(V) rings. These rings are further connected by Np(IV) ions through cation-cation interactions (CCIs) into a three-dimensional neptunium cationic open framework.(More)
Green crystals of (NpO(2))(2)(SeO(4))(H(2)O)(4), (NpO(2))(2)(SeO(4))(H(2)O)(2), and (NpO(2))(2)(SeO(4))(H(2)O) have been prepared by hydrothermal methods. The structures of these compounds have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. (NpO(2))(2)(SeO(4))(H(2)O)(4), isostructural with (NpO(2))(2)(SO(4))(H(2)O)(4), is constructed from layers(More)
Dark green crystals of (NpO(2))(3)(OH)(SeO(3))(H(2)O)(2)·H(2)O (1) have been prepared by a hydrothermal reaction of neptunyl(V) and Na(2)SeO(4) in an aqueous solution at 150 °C, while green plates of Na(NpO(2))(SeO(3))(H(2)O) (2) have been synthesized by evaporation of a solution of neptunyl(V), H(2)SeO(4), and NaOH at room temperature. Both compounds have(More)
Cation-cation interactions (CCIs) are an essential feature of actinyl chemistry, particularly neptunyl(V). To better understand the formation mechanisms of CCIs, the crystallization process of Np(V) CCI compounds has been explored during the evaporation of acidic Np(V) stock solutions using X-ray diffraction and both ex situ and in situ Raman spectroscopy.(More)
A neutral-framework thorium oxohydroxosulfate hydrate has been isolated from aqueous solution. This microporous structure, which self-assembles without a templating agent, is built from [Th6(OH)4O4(H2O)6](12+) hexamers and thorium(IV) monomers linked through bridging sulfates. Solution conditions were chosen to enable an active competition between sulfate(More)
Black prisms of UFeS(3) and UFeSe(3) have been synthesized by solid-state reactions of U, Fe, and S or Se with CsCl as a flux at 1173 K. The structure of these isostructural compounds consists of layers of edge- and corner-sharing FeS(6) or FeSe(6) octahedra that are separated by layers of face- and edge-sharing US(8) or USe(8) bicapped trigonal prisms. The(More)
A lamellar neptunium(IV) methylphosphonate, Np(CH3PO3)(CH3PO3H)(NO3)(H2O).H2O, has been prepared under hydrothermal conditions via the in situ reduction of NpVI to NpIV. The single crystal structure of this compound shows polar layers that are joined to one another via a hydrogen-bonding network involving interlayer water molecules. Magnetic susceptibility(More)
Ln3LuSe6 (Ln = La, Ce), beta-LnLuSe3 (Ln = Pr, Nd), and LnxLu4-xSe6 (Ln = Sm, Gd; x = 1.82, 1.87) have been synthesized using a Sb2Se3 flux at 1000 degrees C. Ln3LuSe6 (Ln = La, Ce) adopts the U3ScS6-type three-dimensional structure, which is constructed from two-dimensional 2(infinity)[Ln3Se6](3-) slabs with the gaps between these slabs being filled by(More)
Black crystals of Np(PS(4)), Np(P(2)S(6))(2), K(11)Np(7)(PS(4))(13), and Rb(11)Np(7)(PS(4))(13) have been synthesized by the reactions of Np, P(2)S(5), and S at 1173 and 973 K; Np, K(2)S, P, and S at 773 K; and Np, Rb(2)S(3), P, and S at 823 K, respectively. The structures of these compounds have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction(More)
Black single crystals of A(6)Cu(12)U(2)S(15) (A = K, Rb, Cs) have been synthesized by the reactive flux method. These isostructural compounds crystallize in the cubic space group Ia ̅3d at room temperature.
