Probing the local coordination environment and nuclearity of uranyl(VI) complexes in non-aqueous media by emission spectroscopy.


We describe the synthesis, solid state and solution properties of two families of uranyl(VI) complexes that are ligated by neutral monodentate and anionic bidentate P=O, P=NH and As=O ligands bearing pendent phenyl chromophores. The uranyl(VI) ions in these complexes possess long-lived photoluminescent LMCT (3)Π(u) excited states, which can be exploited as… (More)
