The concept of coordination number is extremely useful and is widely employed to describe the local chemical environments of atoms. Originally defined by Alfred Werner in 1893, the coordination number is closely related to many other important properties such as atomic radius, molecular and electronic structure, and chemical reactivity. An important modification of Werner s original concept was the recognition that, for certain ligands such as ethylene, two linked atoms jointly occupy a single… Expand
New theoretical insights into high-coordination-number complexes in actinides-centered borane.
TLDR
A new record high coordination number (CN) for actinides established in the cage-like An(BH)24 (An = Th to Cm) via using relativistic quantum chemistry methods and provides details of a new structural motif of boron clusters and nanostructures. Expand
Centrosymmetric and chiral porous thorium organic frameworks exhibiting uncommon thorium coordination environments.
TLDR
Temperature-dependent luminescence studies for both compounds indicate that the trends in the intensity vary as the Th-Th distance and the coordination environments of Th(iv) centers change. Expand
Recent developments in highly basic N-heterocyclic iminato ligands in actinide chemistry.
TLDR

Thorium coordination: A comprehensive review based on coordination number
Abstract Although thorium comprises roughly 8.1 ppm of the Earth, its chemical characteristics and properties have been relatively underexplored. In large part due to its radioactivity and propensityExpand
Mechanochemical synthesis and structural analysis of trivalent lanthanide and uranium diphenylphosphinodiboranates.
TLDR
This work reports how this reactivity appears to be further attenuated in solution when the tBu groups attached to phosphorus are exchanged for R = Ph or H, and describes how mechanochemistry was used to overcome limited solution reactivity with K(H3BPPh2BH3). Expand

Substitution reactions on a hypercoordinated main-group element encapsulated in a pentacapped trigonal prismatic copper cage.
TLDR
The central bromide and iodide in 1 and 2 can be replaced by a sulfide generated in situ from Na2S2O3 to produce [Cu11(μ9-S)(μ3-X)3{S2P(O(i)Pr)2}6] (X = Br, 3; I, 4). Expand
Catalytic Dehydrogenation of Dimethylamine Borane by Highly Active Thorium and Uranium Metallocene Complexes

Cobalt-centred boron molecular drums with the highest coordination number in the CoB16− cluster
TLDR
It is shown that doping of boron clusters with a transition metal atom induces an earlier two-dimensional to three-dimensional structural transition and the CoB16− cluster is tested as a building block in a triple-decker sandwich, suggesting a promising route for its realization in the solid state.
