Reactions of laser-ablated U atoms with (CN)2: infrared spectra and electronic structure calculations of UNC, U(NC)2, and U(NC)4 in solid argon.


Reactions of laser-ablated U atoms with (CN)2 produce UNC, U(NC)2, and U(NC)4 as the major products, identified from their Ar matrix infrared spectra and precursors partially and fully substituted with (13)C and (15)N. Mixed isotopic multiplets substantiate product stoichiometries. Band positions and quantum chemical calculations verify the isocyanide… (More)
