Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of U(IV) and Np(IV) selenium bis(phenolate) complexes are reported. The reaction of two equivalents of the U(IV) complex with p-benzoquinone results in the formation of a U(V)–U(V) species with a bridging reduced quinone. This represents a rare example of high-valent uranium chemistry as well as a rare example of a neptunium aryloxide complex.
