The first cyclopentadienyl complex of uranyl.

Abstract

The U(IV) linear pentacyano metallocene [U(C(5)Me(5))(2)(CN)(5)][NEt(4)](3) reacted with 2 molar equivalents of pyridine N-oxide in THF or acetonitrile to give the U(VI) complex [UO(2)(C(5)Me(5))(CN)(3)][NEt(4)](2), the first uranyl species containing the cyclopentadienyl ligand; the crystal structure revealed that the steric effects of the (C(5)Me(5… (More)
