Heterometallic carboxyphosphonates UO(2)(2+)/Ln(3+) have been prepared from the hydrothermal reaction of uranyl nitrate, lanthanide nitrate (Ln = Sm, Tb, Er, Yb), and phosphonoacetic acid (H(3)PPA). Compound 1, (UO(2))(2)(PPA)(HPPA)(2)Sm(H(2)O)·2H(2)O (1) adopts a two-dimensional structure in which the UO(2)(2+) metal ions bind exclusively to the(More)
Three uranium(VI)-bearing materials were synthesized hydrothermally using the organic ligand 4,4'-biphenyldicarboxylic acid: (UO2)(C14O4H8) (1); [(UO2)2(C14O4H8)2(OH)]·(NH4)(H2O) (2); (UO2)2(C14O4H8)(OH)2 (3). Compound 1 was formed after 1 day at 180 °C in an acidic environment (pH(i) = 4.03), and compounds 2 and 3 coformed after 3 days under basic(More)
Uranyl-carboxyl-ate hybrid materials dominate the catalog of uranyl compounds owing in part to the affinity between COO(-) functional groups and UO2 (2+). Polycarboxyl-ate organic ligands may present a degree of steric hindrance and could thus influence the resulting uranyl topology. Single crystals of the title compound, {(NH4)2[(UO2)2(C12O12)(H2O)2]} n ,(More)
