Fingerprinting the oxidation state of U(iv) by emission spectroscopy.


The solid-state structure of the known complex [Et4N][U(NCS)5(bipy)2] has been re-determined and a detailed spectroscopic and magnetic study has been performed in order to confirm the oxidation states of both metal and bipy ligand. Electronic absorption and infrared spectroscopy suggest that the uranium is in its +4 oxidation state and this has been… (More)
