Out of the 14 lanthanide (Ln) ions, molecular com-plexes of Ln(IV) were known only for cerium and more recently terbium. Here we demonstrate that the +(IV) oxidation state is also accessible for the large praseodymium (Pr) cation. The oxidation of the tetrakis(triphenysiloxide) Pr(III) ate complex, [KPr(OSiPh3)4(THF)3], 1-PrPh, with [N(C6H4Br)3][SbCl6], affords the Pr(IV) complex [Pr(OSiPh3)4(MeCN)2], 2-PrPh, which is stable once isolated. The solid state structure, UV-visible spec-troscopy…

The results indicate that incorporating guanidinate ligands into Ce(iv) complexes gives rise to intense charge transfer bands and noteworthy electronic structures, providing insights into the stabilization of tetravalent lanthanide oxidation states.
Exploring the Oxidation States of Neptunium with Schiff Base Coordination Complexes.
Computational results show that the Np-L covalent interactions in NpIVL2 are similar to those in the NnVIO2L(MeOH) complex, indicating that neither the presence of the axial oxo ligands nor the oxidation state significantly modify the nature of the N p-L bonds.

The obtained values were consistent with electron transfer from the excited antenna to the pyridine providing a previously unexplored quenching pathway that could efficiently compete with energy transfer to the lanthanide.


Stabilization of the + IV oxidation state in siloxide supported terbium compounds.
This report reports the third example of a molecular complex of terbium(IV) which was isolated and characterized by EPR, UV-vis spectroscopy, SQUID magnetometry, and cyclic voltammetry, and provides key information for the isolation of stable lanthanide( IV) ions.

It is shown that the +4 oxidation state is also accessible in a molecular compound of terbium as demonstrated by oxidation of the tetrakis(siloxide)terbium(III) ate complex, [KTb(OSi(O tBu)3)4], 1-Tb, and the presence of Tb4+ was unambiguously confirmed by electron paramagnetic resonance and magnetometry.
