Synthetic strategies to yield molecular complexes of high-valent lanthanides, other than the ubiquitous Ce4+ ion, are excep-tionally rare, and thorough, detailed characterization in these systems is limited by complex lifetime and reaction and isola-tion conditions. The synthesis of high-symmetry complexes in high purity with significant lifetimes in solution and solid-state are essential for determining the role of ligand-field splitting, multiconfigurational behavior, and covalency in govern…

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.
Lanthanide Complexes Containing a Terminal Ln═O Oxo Bond: Revealing Higher Stability of Tetravalent Praseodymium versus Terbium.
We report on the reactivity of gas-phase lanthanide-oxide nitrate complexes, [Ln(O)(NO3)3]- (denoted LnO2+), produced via elimination of NO2• from trivalent [LnIII(NO3)4]- (Ln = Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Tb,
Electron transfer pathways in photoexcited lanthanide(III) complexes of picolinate ligands.
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.
Monoanionic Anilidophosphine Ligand in Lanthanide Chemistry: Scope, Reactivity, and Electrochemistry.
It is found that the radius of the lanthanide ion has a major influence on the reactivity of these complexes, and employing monodentate ligands such as mesitolate, thiomesitolate or 2,4,6-trimethylanilide results in the clean formation of the desired complexes for both lanthanum and lutetium.
High Spin Cobalt Complexes Supported by a Trigonal Tris(Phosphinimide) Ligand.
A new class of multidentate phosphinimide ligands is reported to logically explore this hypothesis that terminally bound PNs engage in strong dπ-pπ interactions that present a weak ligand field appropriate to stabilize high-spin states of late transition metals.
Rare-earth metal and actinide organoimide chemistry.
The present review puts its main emphasis on identifying reaction pathways currently available/elaborated for the generation of actinide and rare-earth metal imide moieties and the intriguing structural and reactivity features of such organoimide derivatives as highlighted by small-molecule activation, group-transfer capability, and the redox chemistry of uranium, cerium, ytterbium, samarium and europium.
Series of Tetravalent Actinide Amidinates: Structure Determination and Bonding Analysis.
Two series of isostructural tetravalent actinide amidinates bearing the chiral (S,S)-N,N'-bis(1-phenylethyl)benzamidinate ((S)-PEBA) ligand have been synthesized and thoroughly characterized in solid and in solution.
Dicerium letterbox-shaped tetraphenolates: f-block complexes designed for two-electron chemistry.
Rare examples of molecular, dinuclear CeIII and PrIII complexes with robust Ln-coordination are accessible by use of the tetraphenolate pTP as a supporting, chelating O-donor ligand platform, pTP =
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.
Heterometallic Clusters with Multiple Rare Earth Metal-Transition Metal Bonding.
The identification of the first example of a molecule containing multiple RE-Rh bonds is presented, providing a possible route for the construction of complexes with multiple RE metal-metal bonds and an investigation of their potential properties and applications.


Rare Earth Metal Complexes of Bidentate Nitroxide Ligands: Synthesis and Electrochemistry.

A Macrocyclic Chelator That Selectively Binds Ln4+ over Ln3+ by a Factor of 1029.
The experimental results are presented, indicating that the amount of LMCT for CeLK4 is similar to that observed for [Et4N]2[CeCl6] and CeO2 and significantly less than that for the organometallic sandwich compound cerocene, (C8H8)2Ce.
Molecular Complex of Tb in the +4 Oxidation State.
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.
Reduction of a Cerium(III) Siloxide Complex To Afford a Quadruple-Decker Arene-Bridged Cerium(II) Sandwich.
Organometallic multi-decker sandwich complexes containing f-elements remain rare, despite their attractive magnetic and electronic properties, and structural parameters, UV/Vis/NIR data, and DFT studies indicate the presence of CeII ions involved in δ bonding between the Ce cations and toluene dianions.
