Insights into the mechanism of carbonate formation through reductive cleavage of carbon dioxide with low-valent uranium centers

Author affiliations

Abstract

The low-valent U(III) complexes [((t-BuArO)3mes)U] and [((AdArO)3N)U] react with CO2 to form the bridging carbonate complexes [{((t-BuArO)3mes)U}2(μ-κ22-CO3)] and [{((AdArO)3N)U}2(μ-η12-CO3)]. Uranium(IV) bridging oxo complexes have been determined to be the intermediate in these transformations.
